Assignment Is Showing As "Locked"

Jump to solution

We have setup an assignment with the following dates:

Due Date = 10/13 11:59pm

Available From = 10/5 11:59pm   

Until 10/13 11:59pm

We always use the Available From and Until dates so that Canvas will not accept late assignments.

Until now this method of dating assignments has worked fine. 

As of the last two days when we are in Student View and open the assignment Canvas says:

"This assignment is part of the module Week 10, which is locked until Oct 13 at 11:59pm."

Can you help?

Thank you.

ggillombardo@carrington.edu,

Look at the Module that this specific assignment belongs to.  It looks like the Module has a lock date of Oct 13 at 11:59 pm.  You will need to change the lock date on the Module to have students access the Assignment.

Canvas says to use the Available From and Until dates when you will not accept a late assignment.

And that is correct, ggillombardo@carrington.edu‌. However, in addition to the dates that can be set on an assignment, a lock date can be set on an entire module. Please check the module to see if it has a lock date. This message—"This assignment is part of the module Week 10, which is locked until Oct 13 at 11:59pm"—is referring to the module, not to the assignment.

Thank you Robbie, however, Canvas says to use the Available From and Until dates when you will not accept a late assignment. For this reason we use the Available From and Until Dates. If the Until Date is 10/13 11:59pm this means that any assignments submitted after this date/tim will be late.

Canvas has never, before this, interpreted our use of the Until Date as a “lock date”.

Hi Stefanie,

Though I understand what you are saying, we did not lock the module. We simply placed Due Dates, Available From and Until Dates on the assignment; specifically the Until Date of Oct 13 @ 11:59p

I can see that the module that contains this assignment is showing as “locked” as of Oct 13 at 11:59pm, but we did not, knowingly, lock the module. What is the mechanism for locking a module?

Thank you!

Hi, ggillombardo@carrington.edu‌, I can't speak to how the module came to be locked, but the instructions for setting a lock date are in https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-13096-415241432

ggillombardo@carrington.edu‌, the message you're seeing leads me to suspect that there is a lock date on the module itself. Have you checked that?
