Apply 50% to "incomplete" assignments

Jump to solution

I am a teacher and my policy is that students get 50% for any missing assignments. I have the gradebook set to do this automatically. However, I have noticed that it only works for assignments that get a point value grade, not for assignments that are "complete/incomplete." Is there a way to apply 50% to assignments marked "incomplete"?

Thank you,

Hi @TovahSkiles,

Unfortunately, I don't think there is a way to do this automatically.  One of the notes on the  How do I apply a Missing Submission policy in the ... - Instructure Community - 963  guide page says, "If a Missing Submission policy is applied in a course, missing submissions for Complete/Incomplete assignments will be awarded an Incomplete grade with a score of 0, regardless of the Missing submission grade value."   I think if you want a 50% grade for missing on that type of grade system, you'd have to enter the 50% manually.
