If required, topic coordinators/teachers can grant a student/s an extension beyond the due date and cut-off date for an assignment. You can do this using either the Assignment extension tool or in the Assignment grading screen

The Assignment extension tool is a Finders' tool built to 'plug into' and integrate with FLO. The Assignment extension tool formalises the extension process, ensuring an approval trail for the student's request. 

The Assignment grading screen is FLO’s inbuilt method for applying extensions for assignments. It enables the teacher to grant an extension for administrative reasons (eg to allow a student to resubmit beyond the cut-off date). You can grant extensions via the grading screen in circumstances where the student has not made a request via the Assignment extension tool (eg when a student has been granted a resubmission). Ideally, an extension should be applied to a resubmission so teacher and student know when the resubmission is due. (If the agreed resubmission date is beyond the cutoff date, an extension must be applied for the student to be able to submit.)

If required, topic coordinators/teachers can grant students extensions beyond the due date and cut-off date. You can do this either using the Assignment Extension tool or in the assignment grading screen. The Assignment grading screen enables the teacher to grant an extension for technical reasons (eg to allow a student to resubmit beyond the cut-off date).
