Assignment Due Dates
Instructors have the ability to create assignments that require students to complete certain activities before a specified due date.
For example, this instructor created the assignment “Reading 4.1 - 4.5” and required participation activities from section 4.1 to 4.5 to be completed before a specified due date.
How is the assignment scored?
We always collect all activity data that a student completes for any activity at any time. When an activity is part of an assignment, activity completion data for that activity is counted towards that assignment score up until the due date. After the due date has passed, we will still collect activity data, but we will not apply the scores towards the assignment. If the assignment's due date is changed, the activity scores will be updated to reflect all activity completed by the new due date (whether the new due date is earlier or later). Only instructors have the ability to update assignment due dates.
Note that the assignments feature is optional. Assignments will only show up in your zyBook if your instructor has chosen to use this feature.
