This article will outline the submission statuses of On Time, Missing, Late, Excused, and Excluded (also known as Exempt).
Submission Status Categories
As long as the student submits the assessment prior to the due date/time (if one is set), it will automatically be marked as On Time.
If a due date has passed and the student has not submitted the assessment, it will automatically be marked as Missing.
Missing assessments are not automatically given a zero (0). The teacher can manually score the assessment with a 0.
If you would like to allow students to complete a Missing assessment after giving them a 0, please see this article for more details.
If the student submits the assessment after the due date, it will automatically be marked as Late.
An assessment will also automatically be marked Late if a grade is added to a Missing assessment.
This is not automatically given under any circumstance; it has to be manually given by the teacher.
Any points score given for assessments that have been marked as excused will not add into the student's total class grade, but the points will still be visible in the gradebook.
This is automatically given if the "Include Score in Final Grade" setting is unchecked for a points-based assessment. Click here for more information on excluding assessments.
Any score given for assessments that have been marked as Excluded will not add into the student's total class grade, but the points will still be visible in the gradebook.
