If you use grading periods in the Grade Center, select a due date to easily include that test in a grading period and on the calendar in the My Blackboard menu.

Due Date and Late Submissions

Decide whether to allow a student/participant to take a test after the due date has passed. If you select the check box and the due date has passed, students receive a message telling them the test cannot be completed because the due date has passed.

When you allow late submissions, they are clearly marked on the Needs Grading page, the View All Attempts page, the Review Test Submission page, and the Grade Details page.
