What Do the Assignment Statuses Mean?

  • Locked: Students cannot view or open an assignment until the start date and time. Until then, assignments will be locked.
  • Not Started: Not started indicates that students have access to the assignment because the start date and time have arrived, but the assignment has not yet been opened.
  • Started: Started indicated that at least one student has opened the assignment.
  • Closed: Closed indicates that the due date has occurred. Students will no longer be able to access or submit the assignment past the due date. An assignment also becomes closed to individual students once the student has submitted the assignment.
  • Graded: It is up to teachers to change an assignment status to graded once all students have submitted and scores are in the Gradebook. It is also up to teachers to release grades to students and allow students to review.
