You can adjust assignment settings for a single student using the Assignment Calendar. Please read How to change Assignment Settings for a Group of Students using the Calendar to adjust the assignment settings for a group of students using the assignment calendar.


Click "Calendar"

From your LaunchPad home page, click Calendar.

Click the "Assignment" tab

From the Basic Info screen, select Assignment (or Assign Due Date depending on the LaunchPad). From this tab, you can change due date and other common settings. Changing the due date for an individual or group gives them an extension.

Add Individual

At the top of the page, there will be a drop-down menu that says Settings for. If this is the first time you are editing an assignment for this individual, select Add Individual. A window will appear that allows you to search/type in a student's name from your roster. After selecting the student here, their name will appear as an option in the Settings for drop-down. Adding a student in this way will not automatically select their name in the drop-down menu.


Select student

Use the Settings for drop-down to select a student you want to change settings for.

Click "Assign" or "Save"

Once you have selected your desired settings, click Assign or Save Changes at the bottom of the page.


Click the "Settings" tab

Use the Settings tab to adjust time limit, number of attempts, etc., making sure that Settings for is still set to the individual student.


Click "Save"

Once you have selected your desired settings, click Save.
Your assignment will now appear for the individual student with the settings you have selected.
