Late submission Loophole?

Question asked by Ed Greco on Aug 27, 2018

I am using a late submission policy with my grade book and it doesn't seem to work the way I think it should and I am looking for some clarification or help. 


I have an assignment that uses an external resources for homework (WileyPLUS) with multiple questions due on Friday at 11:59pm.  I am using a late policy that deducts 10% for each day that the assignment is late.

  1. The student accesses the assignment several days before Friday
    • submits answers to a single question in the assignment
  2. The student access the assignment several days after Friday
    • submits answers to the remaining questions in the assignment
  3. The student is never marked late and receives no point deduction


Generally my students seem to have found a loophole in the late submission policy.  Is there a way to close it?  Is this a bug or feature?  Any guidance would be appreciated.
