Granting an Extension to an Assignment in Blackboard, Canvas, D2L, Sakai, or Moodle

Note(s): Although this Quick Guide will refer to Assignments, all steps also apply to Projects.

Getting Started

When a student submits their coursework, the assignment locks and is in a view-only mode. To make any changes to the assignment (i.e. remove a file, add an additional file), the student must “recall” the assignment. If the assessor has already started filling out the assessment tool, the student will not be able to “recall” their work to make edits. The student will receive an error message when he or she attempts to recall the assignment: “You can only recall an item that has been submitted and not yet assessed.

If the student needs to make changes to a “locked” assignment, the assessor must grant an extension. This tutorial describes two possible ways to grant an extension when, as the assessor:

  • I have already started my evaluation for this student, but I have not yet submitted the evaluation.
  • I have already submitted my evaluation of this student’s work.

Assessor has not Submitted the Evaluation

  1. Navigate to your Coursework link within your Learning Management System (e.g., Blackboard, Canvas, D2L, Sakai, Moodle).
  2. From the list of students, click Grant Extension in the Actions column for the student who needs granted an extension.
  3. Enter a new due date and time, then click Grant Extension.
