Moving an assignment from one quarter to another.

Jump to solution

I gave an assignment and it was due for quarter 1.  I only received a select few were actually turned in.  I would like to re-assign this for quarter 2 but I can't.  When I go to edit it, it says "Some settings have been disabled because the assignment is in a closed grading period." 

Even if I duplicate the assignment it carries over the due dates.  Essentially I cannot give the assignment again.  I've tried importing in back into my class. I've duplicated it.  I'm stuck.

Hi Brian,

I have experienced the same problem.

Contacting admin is not a great solution (or one at all) in my opinion.

A colleague of mine helped to find a solution for me that may also work for you.

In my situation, we have a Sandbox course to save assignments. I had a copy of the closed assignment in the unpublished Sandbox course. I was able to change the due date in the unpublished Sandbox course and then import to my current class.

I hope this can help you out.

This behavior is in my opinion clearly indicative of 'buggy' software, where 'buggy' is a euphemism for poorly designed.

Good luck.
