Managing extensions


If you need to provide students with extensions or manage special consideration requirements, you can do this via the My Class page in Cadmus. 

In this article, we'll cover:

Final due date extensions

For standard Cadmus Assignments, you can extend the final submission date for individual students in Cadmus.

To extend the final due date

  1. From the Students tab on the My Class page, find the student you would like to set an extension for.
  2. Click Student options ••• next to the student's name.
  3. Click Extend final due.
  4. Select the new submission date and time for the student.
  5. Click Confirm extension.

You will now see a final due extension tag next to the student's name in the class list. Students will see this new date in their instructions while working in Cadmus as well. If you want to Remove or Update the extension, click Student options ••• next to the student's name in the class list, and then select Update final due extension or Remove final due extension.

TIP: You can filter your class list to view students that have been granted extensions. Click on the Progress filter and select Has extension.

You can also use the extension functionality to allow individual students to resubmit after the due date. For example, if a student has accidentally submitted an incorrect version of their work, granting them an extension will allow them to resubmit. Learn more about how students submit in Cadmus.

 

Time limit extensions

If your assessment task has a time limit, it is also possible to extend the amount of time allocated for an individual student.
