Lock an assignment
By locking an assignment you can control when students can access or submit an assignment. Lock an assignment to restrict students from accessing it until the date you set. Or, you can lock submissions to prevent students from submitting assignments after a date you set (e.g. the day after the due date).
To lock an assignment:
- To navigate to the assignment you want to lock, click Assignments in the left-hand navigation menu, then click on the name of the assignment.
- In the upper right-hand corner, click Edit Assignment.
- Under the text editor, click more options. The lock assignment options appear.
To lock an assignment before the due date:
In the box next to Locked Until, click the calendar icon and select a date and time to unlock the assignment and make it available to students.
To lock an assignment after the due date:
In the box next to Lock Submits After, click the calendar icon and select a date and time to lock the assignment from further submissions from students.
- Click Update Assignment.
