I have assigned the Alternative assignment for Crime Scene Investigation to 3 students only (they could not participate in the on-campus investigation). I set the due date at 12 March. However, as shown in screenshot below, the due date is not appearing. When I go to my Calendar, it appears as crossed out (see screenshot below). None of the students have done the assignment (because it did not appear in their calendar), so I have not graded it yet.
Did you set the available from date?
If not, that is the issue I believe. I ran into this problem a while back and I believe that the available from date has to be set for a calendar entry to be set.
Thanks for getting back to me so quickly! Impressive! Originally, I had set a from and until date but then removed that (thinking that might be the problem), refreshed, but still no dice - the due date is not showing up.
I went back and looked again at what you sent. I see now that assignment itself underneath does not have the due date. I just tried it out on my course and with just a due date, it shows up underneath the assignment (even with it unpublished). I see that yours just has the points value. My information looks slightly different from yours as well. mine has due with the date and time. I am not sure what is happening. I'll have to pass on the solution and let more knowledgeable people weigh in.
The quick reply was because you posted right before I happened to look through the questions.
Thanks again for the follow-up. I think it may have something to do with the fact that I have assigned this piece of work to only 3 students, from different sections and not to a whole class. Maybe?
