Can a student resubmit any Assignment?

Students always have the option to resubmit their assignments. As an instructor, you can decide how to handle Assignment resubmissions.

You do have the option to set availability dates for each Assignment. Availability dates can restrict the dates that an assignment can be submitted.

All Assignment submissions can be viewed in SpeedGrader™.

Set Assignment Availability Dates

If you want to keep students from resubmitting assignments after a certain date, you can change the Assignment availability dates. Next to the date you want to change, choose the Calendar icon.
