When I mute assignments during my grading, is a student still able to submit a late assignment? Or do I have to unmute first? I sometimes start my grading for the rest of the class even though a student needs an extension.
To the best of my knowledge, students can submit while an assignment is muted.
You can learn more at How do I mute or unmute an assignment in the Gradebook?
I hope this helps,
Hello Patty Turley...
Kelley L. Meeusen is absolutely correct on this. To confirm, I tried this out in my sandbox course. I created an assignment with a due date of November 1, 2017 and muted it. Then, I logged in as a dummy student, submitted the assignment, and then looked at the "Grades" page. Next to the assignment was the icon to let me know that the instructor was working on grades. I then returned to the instructor view. As the instructor, I could see the student submission in the SpeedGrader.
You could also test this out in a very similar way by using the "Test Student" option in your course. Here is a Guide on how to use that: How do I view a course using a test student?
I hope this helps, Patty!
