This article details how to navigate through an assignment extension. You will also find instructions on how to edit them, how grades work, and what students see when they are added to an assignment extension.
Once you've created an extension for your assignment, the extension will be nested within their parent assignment, to avoid overcrowding the Assignments page. Here's what you will see when you open an assignment with existing extension(s).
- To the left of the page, you'll notice a menu populated with existing extensions and a New extension button below them.
- You'll also notice the Main cohort tab which will allow you to see all students included in the original group.
- If you hover over the name of your extension, you will see a three-dot symbol that will allow you to Edit or Delete it.
- To uncover or hide an extension from students, click on the eye symbol to the right.
It is only possible to create assignment extensions in Handin and Turnitin, not in Quizzes.
- Head to Journey > Assignments.
- Select the assignment where the extension is created.
- Click on the 3 dots next to the extension you would like to edit.
- Click Edit and you will be able to adjust the title, add or remove participants, and delete the extension.
- Click Next and you will be able to change the description, open and due date, as well as the grade release date.
- Click Apply to save the changes.
- Each student can only have 1 submission in each assignment – i.e. they can't be included in the main cohort as well as in the extension of the same assignment.
- If you export grades to a .CSV file for a particular assignment, grades for all students will be automatically combined in the same column, regardless of which cohort they submitted their work in.
- If an educator removes a student's graded submission from the first cohort to include the same student in an extension, their original grade will also be removed.
Students can only see visible extensions to which they, in particular, have been added. We won't show students extensions that are not relevant to them specifically. For students, the names of extensions are visible on the Assignments page.
