why are students allowed to resubmit an assignment?

Speedgrader is saying I have more to grade, since a student somehow was allowed a resubmission, but the first submission is graded, end of story!

You have to set the due date and the availability date as the same date/time, then students will not be allowed to resubmit.

However, in testing this in my own sandbox course, if you have an assignment with a due date of December 15, 2018 at 5:30 p.m. with availability dates of December 1, 2018 at 6:00 a.m. through December 15, 2018 at 5:30 p.m., students would still be able to re-submit the assignment over and over again because we haven't yet reached December 15, 2018.  I'm not sure if this is the scenario for Elizabeth where the due date is some date yet in the future, but I wanted to provide this information just in case.

Yes, that's true.  I don't do any grading until after the due date so I don't have that issue.
