Note: Some of these features may not be available if your version of LaunchPad arranges your icons horizontally across the top of the screen (as opposed to vertically down the left side of your screen). For an explanation of the difference, see the help article How do I navigate LaunchPad?.
You can adjust assignment settings for a single student or a specific group of students. Please watch the video below or read the written instructions that follow.
Examples of settings you may want to change include:
- Due date, such as giving a due date extension. You can grant due date extensions for all assignment types.
- Time limit, such as giving students with disabilities extra time to complete an assignment. The time limit setting is available only for the quiz assignment type.
- Number of attempts, such as giving a group of students a chance to redo their work. The number of attempts setting is available only for the quiz assignment type.
For tips on how to best use these settings, see the help article Tips for Setting up Assignments.
