Remediation after end of term

Question asked by Emily Springfield on Aug 12, 2015

Our students sometimes have to re-submit failing assignments in order to pass a class.  Frequently, these assignments need to be turned in after the end of the term.  Is it possible for students to do this in Canvas? One way I can think of is to extend the submission date for the student past the end of the semester. If students are allowed to see the course after the end of the term, would this work? Would we need to retroactively change the custom dates of the term to include the date we expect the remediation to be turned in?


Example: A fall course ends Dec. 15. The student failed her last assignment and needs to re-do it, but the semester is already over, so we decide we will accept her remediation until January 15. Can we just extend her assignment's due date until Jan 15, or perhaps extend the course's custom term until Jan 15 and THEN extend her assignment?


Other workarounds are most welcome!
