I create an assignment (e.g. quiz or file upload) where some questions need to be hand graded. I set the grading to zero for any late assignments. For assignments submitted on time, I go through and grade accordingly, but for late assignments I want that to be a zero in the grade book. Alas, if a student submits an assignment late the "page" icon appears for that student when I open the grade book. For me to get a zero, there are several options, all of them needless and time consuming. Why not simply grade as was asked and put a zero in there? If the instructor wants to override then they can grade separately. The grade book already color codes late assignments so I don't need to see the icon to know an assignment was late.
