Is it possible to have a late penalty policy automatically deducted from the points that the student earned on an assignment instead of from the total points available for the assignment? It doesn't seem so in the guides.
Susan, Greetings! You are correct that the late policy deducts the points based on total points possible, not based on the points the student earned on the assignment. And no, this is not currently something that can be changed. If you believe this is an important feature/option to have, then my recommendation is to create a feature idea for it in the Ideas.
Sorry I couldn't be more help!
