Prevent submission changes in an Assignment

In the case of a digital exam based on an Assignment, exam papers can be modified up to the cut-off date set in the Assignment. A student who leaves the examination room early, after submitting his or her assignment, may still be able to modify his or her work between now and the end of the examination. 

When a student leaves the exam room early, the student must be prevented from modifying the work. 

Preventing changes to student work

For anonymous exams

For anonymous exams, it is impossible to search for a student's work by first and last name. To make it easier for you to find the student's work, go to the bottom of the Submissions page. In Assignments per page, select "All".
