I set up my course to allow assignments to be late for a 10% deduction per day for up to 6 days. However, my students are telling me that the assignments are locked after the due date and won't allow them to submit them late. I am so confused.
Howdy Annie Stermer,
Thanks for your reply. If you want to accept late assignments after the due date for all assignments; then you would need to edit the assignments and change the until date to be after the due date.
There is a way to change them all at once, but I personally I just do them manually one by one.

As far as the "Automatically apply grade for missing submissions" that is a different feature. It applies a 0 for most assignments after the due date has passed (ie the automation is prompted by the due date). If you are accepting late assignments, you may not want to use this feature. You can still easily apply 0s for non-submissions en masse by using the set default grade feature though (generally you would do this after everyone else's assignment has been graded and after the due date- but in your situation, you might wait 10 days before awarding 0s.
How do I set a default grade for an assignment?
Let us know if that accomplishes what you needed!
Thanks for sharing your question. It sounds like you might be using the same "due date" and "until date" for the assignment. If you want your assignment to be able to accept submissions after the due date (let's say 10/7) then the "until date" needs to be at least 10 days after the due date (ie 10/17 because -10% per day, 10 days = 0) or just don't put an "until date." The below links might be of help to you.
What is the difference between assignment due dates and availability dates?
Let us know if this is helpful.
So I have set the late policy correctly but do I have to go in to each individual assignment and change the "until" date?
Also, where it says "Automatically apply grade for missing submissions" What should I set grade percentage for missing assignments at? I assume 0% because if its missing they would receive 0? But it defaults to 100%.... confusing.
