Can I alter an assignment after it is published?

You can always change the description, date and method of assessment of an assignment through Edit Assignment. The type of assignment and how students have to complete an assignment, however, can only be altered as long as no student has submitted their work. The settings Assignment Type and Submission Type play a role.

  • Navigate to Activities in the navbar of your course.
  • Click Assignments.
  • Click the fold-out arrow next to the desired assignment and then click Edit Assignment.

If students have not yet handed anything in, you can use Submission, Completion and Categorization to alter whether it is an Individual assignment or a Group assignment. You can also alter the Submission type: as a file (File submission), as a comment (Text submission), hard copy  (On paper submission), or as a performed task (Observed in person).

  • If there are currently no submissions, the options for altering the assignments are similar to the options when you create a new assignment. If you want to learn more about these options, please read the article How do I create an Assignment?
  • Dates and access to the assignment can be altered below restrictions. Read more in the article How do I set restrictions for an Assignment?
