How to Grant Extensions on Assignments
To grant an extension to one or more students, start by opening the assignment from the course gradebook, the course, or with a sidebar navigation widget, such as Needs grading or the Calendar. Once the assignment is open, scroll down to the grading summary and click View/grade all submissions.
Use the filter in the top right to view just those students who have not submitted work.
Click the selection box next to any student that you would like to have more time on the assignment.
Then, scroll down to the bottom of the page and choose Grant extension.
You will be taken to a new page where you will need to scroll down again to choose the new due date. Be sure to check the box to enable the date, and then click Save changes.
Saving the changes will return you to the assignment grading page and you will see that a note indicating that an extension has been granted by the student record of anyone who received an extension.
