Discussion Due Dates

I have created a discussion and the due date in PTP is the date it closes.  Is there a way to allow a student to participate in a discussion late without having the date modified in the PTP grade book?  If I reopen it it changes the due date in PTP which I do not want. This will be an issue.

Re: Learning PTP Grade Sync in UC

Hello, @jhanlon-

 

Thank you for your post in our Community! It sounds like you would like to be able to have late submissions to discussions without having to change the due date. At this time, changing the due date is the only option for continuing to accept submissions. I understand that this is not the option you are looking for. Another idea is to create a separate discussion or assessment to receive the late submissions. We would be happy to take your feedback on this back to our team. Please feel free to provide additional details.

 

Kind regards,

Stacey

Learning PTP Grade Sync in UC

We have some large issues with the way learning syncs with the PTP gradebook in Unified Classroom.  I would like to know if anybody else has come across these issues.

 

Assessments and Discussions- Once a date window is set, the closing date goes to the PTP gradebook.  Once that date hits the assesment closes.  If we have a kid that needs to take the exam or discussion in learning the teacher will need to reopen it.  To do so they need to change the date in Learning/class pages.  This then changes the due date of the exam or discussion in the PTP gradebook through the sync.  This is an issue becasue now it comprimisies the due date the teacher intended for the students and parents. 

 

 

Bottom line is that we need to let kids complete activities late past the deadline.  It could be becasue of an IEP or just a courtasy to a special situation.  As of now I am not finding a way to do that in Class Pages without changing the due date in PTP.

Hi @jhanlon

 

It looked like these two questions were aspects of the same issue, so we've merged them together to streamline the discussion. Please let us know if we've misunderstood this.

Re: Learning PTP Grade Sync in UC

My recomendation would be to have the PTP gradebook override what it in class pages.  We previously used another LMS and ran data syncs with 3rd part solutions and had more functionality then we currently do in UC.

Re: Learning PTP Grade Sync in UC

Thank you this is very important to us.  PTP is the main gradebook and we need to be able to control that the way we always have.  If you craeate the assignment in Class Pages the PTP assignment is very limited.  Students need to be able to hand in work late in class pages  Especiallty those who need acomidations or we could face legal issues.  Simply creating a new discussion or new test for those students is not a good workflow and creates a grade column for the whole class.
