I want to share a short policy update. If you watch Canvas carefully, you may notice that some of the dates for Major Projects have (and will) change. If you don’t pay lots of attention to the minor details (which is fine), you can skip this info. Here’s what I’m doing to make the revision system work:
- When we start a major assignment, it has a due date and it is open until the end of the grace period (3 days after the due date).
- When I start grading a major assignment, I change the due date to the date that was the end of the grace period. I set the assignment as open until the end of the course (to allow you to submit revisions).
Why? By changing the dates, I have an easy way to know if someone who did not submit the project at all turns it in after the grace period ends.
