Description


Submission Reassignments feature: If a user reassigns an assignment to a student in SpeedGrader, where the assignment has a lock date in the past, the student gets a to do list item for it again, but cannot actually resubmit. This prevents the to do list item from being cleared.

Expected Behavior

 

Should we:

  • Not allow that feature to be used with a lock date

  • Change the re-assign feature to disregard lock dates when submissions are re-assigned like we can do with moderation in Classic Quizzes

 

Workaround


No workaround exists at this time.

Steps to Reproduce

 

  1. Create a published course with at least one student

  2. Create an online assignment and allow multiple attempts

  3. Set a due date and lock date in the future for the assignment

  4. As the student, submit the assignment

  5. Let the due date and lock date pass

  6. Navigate to SpeedGrader, and leave a submission comment

  7. Click reassign assignment

  8. As the student, view the home page of the course

  9. Note that you have a to do list item for that assignment, but when you navigate to the assignment, you cannot submit it
