Class assignments have specific due dates and times. Here are a few examples.
- at 11:55 PM on April 15
- at the beginning of class on April 15
Class assignments also have allowed means for submission. Here are a few examples of these.
- uploaded on moodle as class assignment xxx
- turned in at class meeting
- delivered to the department’s office assistant
Assignment submissions that do not conform to these rules are considered late and must be uploaded to the course’s Moodle bin for late assignments as a prerequisite for grading.
Uploading to the bin for late assignments does not guarantee assignment credit. There is no precise formulae regarding the credit that will be given for late assignments; however, assignments submitted more than a two weeks late or after solutions have been presented will rarely be graded.
If there is a justification why the assignment is late, that should be attached as a note to the assignment when it is uploaded.
The bin for late assignments is a mechanism for placing the responsibility for managing late assignments on the student rather than the instructor.
It should be noted that emailing or delivering a paper copy of a late assignment is not considered a substitution for uploading the assignment to the bin for late assignments. An emailable submission can be uploaded, and a paper copy can be scanned and then uploaded.
