Avoid getting red marks for handing in late

Jump to solution

Hi! 

Our students work at different paces, but we still want to give them suggested dates to help them plan their studies. One thing that we fear might be misleading/negative is when the student get red marks for handing in the assignments late. It's ok that the assignments are labeled as "missing" because that is useful information for them, but we don't want them to get red marks for handing in late (because we don't mind them being late). Are there any settings to get rid of the "late" label? I know that the teachers can do this manually for each assignment/student, but it is just too time consuming for them. It would be best if they didn't appear at all. Are there any solutions to this problem?

Hello  @rebecca_asker ...

You might want to take a look at a "Canvancement" (Canvas Enhancement) that  @James ‌ created a while back called Removing Missing and Late Labels.

Hi  @rebecca_asker ‌, have you considered removing the due dates for assignments and instead adding calendar events to alert students about assignments? This would remove the functionality for Canvas to mark submissions as late.
