As an instructor, I want to excuse an assignment for a student or students. When "excused," the assignment would have no impact on the student(s)' grade. Common use cases include excluding assignments for students who start late in the year or have a prolonged absence. Other uses would be making one assignment count for one subset of students while another subset have a different assignment that counts towards their grades. Other examples would be capstone projects, optional assignments, or extra credit.Excusing a student from completing an assignment should also remove the to-do list item for that student.
