Submitting an assignment after the available date

Jump to solution

I created a text submission assignment with availability times.  A student submitted assignment a minute after the available UNTIL time.  I tried changing the UNTIL time but student had already lost the work.  Is there a way to retrieve the lost work or do I have to set a new availability time for this student and they have to retype the work?

Hi @mmtong 

You should have set a separate availability time for the one student, and you can still do so but the student will need to re-submit. Availability times can be troublesome for students who encounter personal or technical challenges, and I seldom use them. The due date is good enough, and if your students submit late, Canvas will mark it as a late submission and you can then chose how to deal with the late submission. Canvas can even automatically deduct points for late submissions if you desire that.

I hope this is helpful,

Kelley
