Why do excused assignments still show as needing to be completed for students?

I have a teacher that has entered EX or a manual grade for some assignments in her course for a student.  However, the student is still seeing that the assignment needs to be submitted or completed even though the gradebook has EX or a grade.  Is there a setting that we have incorrect?

Hi  @hmrozarb .  I was reading up on this a bit and noticed that it looks like this issue has come up before (see" ...).  The good news is that it is listed as being in Beta.  There is another idea listed at the bottom of this page that may be worth looking in to as well.

I hope this helps! 

Thank you Eric.  The idea you referenced was actually my own:)  The most recent one referred to in my post seems like a glitch.  When an assignment is put in as "EX" in the gradebook, the student was still seeing that it needed to be completed when they shouldn't.  Thank you for the help!

Ha!  So it was!  Well just in case you forgot . . .   Smiley Happy   I am a cut and paste fanatic so who knows what happened.

Are you using the new gradebook?  I just tested in one of my sandbox courses and it looks like I was manually able to remove the missing tag or change it to excused.  Just wondering if this is not working for you or you are looking for this to be done automatically.
