The assignment tool in FLO can be used to deliver take-home exams. In this format, students get access to the exam question/topic at a particular time, then need to submit (either by uploading a file or by typing text directly into FLO) by the due date.
If the Cut-off date is not enabled, late submission (after the Due date) is possible.
The images above depict a scenario where students are provided with the exam instructions 2 days before the Due date. The instructions in the assignment description state that ‘late submissions will not be accepted’, so the Cut-off date is the same as
the Due date.
For an exam that has a strict time limit
(for example, a 3-hour exam), ensure the Cut-off date is set to at least 15 minutes
after the Due date to allow for last-minute technical issues. If students submit after the Due date but before the Cut-off date, their exam will be accepted but will be recorded in FLO as being late.
This is how the assignment displays to students before the Allow submissions from date/time:
