All assignment dates relating to this assignment are shown on the Summary page of the Submission Inbox.

    The important dates for the assignment will be shown on this summary page.

  2. To edit these dates, select the Edit Parts button.

  3. Select the calendar icon beside each date to select a new one.

    Start Date
    The Start Date defines the earliest time a student can make a submission to the assignment part.

    Due Date
    This is the final date by which the student should have submitted their assignment. If Late Submissions is enabled then submissions made after the due date will be marked as late.

    Post Date
    This is the date when marks/grades will be made available to students. If anonymous marking is enabled (UK only) this is also the date when marks/grades will be shown to tutors in the Grade centre. (They will, however, appear in the assignment’s Submissions Inbox as soon as they are graded, as the student name remains anonymous until the Post Date.)

  4. All done? Select the Update Parts button to update the assignment.
