SpeedGrader's submission drop-down tags LATE status to on-time submissions

Canvas white logo

This behavior has been resolved and deployed to the production environment as of 8/31/22.



When a student's first submission was submitted on time, it will show as LATE in the SpeedGrader drop-down if a subsequent LATE re-submission is made.

Expected Behavior


Instead it should not update the LATE indicator on past submissions which were submitted on time, only on re-submissions made after the due date.


No workaround exists at this time.

Steps to Reproduce


  1. Create an assignment with a due date a few minutes out

  2. As a student, submit to the assignment

  3. Wait until the due date passes, and resubmit

  4. Go into SpeedGrader and look at the submission drop-down box. You’ll see that both submissions are tagged with “LATE” after the timestamp even though only the second submission is late.
