Add or change assignment availability and due dates to restrict student access. Assignments include high-stakes graded assignments such as quizzes, often labeled Checkpoints, and some other assignments that appear in the Gradebook including My Response. Checkpoints are the most common type of graded assignment.

Start at the Manage Course page.

  1. Choose Schedule course materials.
  2. Click Update at the bottom to access the Schedule Course grid.
  3. Click the Available now link then click Change scheduled dates.

    Note: Change the default end time of 12:01 AM to 11:59 PM of the due date or the quiz will close one minute after midnight of the due date, one minute into the day of the due date instead of midnight of the due date.
