Penalties & "Failing" grades
If a student receives a grade that fails to reach the minimum pass grade for the activity, and they are also late, the penalty will not be applied. See Policy & Procedure on Late Submission of Coursework, section 4.4.2
What does it do?
Late Submission Report
It is also possible for staff to view all the late submissions a student has made across all their classes, if the assessment is represented by a Myplace assignment.
The goal of this report is to allow staff from any class/department/School to see if a student seems to be showing a pattern of late submissions across their curriculum.
Removing a late submission penalty for a single student
To remove a late submission penalty for a single student, you must retrospectively grant them an extension for the piece of work. Instructions on how to do this can be found in the Extension Requests article.
Removing a late submission penalty for a group assignment
Where an assignment is a group submission you cannot use the individual extension option to make them "not late", you must use the Group Override function.
- Access the assignment
- Access the Group Override page
- Add an override that amends the due date for the group so they will no longer be counted as "late" (this would typically be 1minute after the submission time shown)
- Save the override
- Identify the students in the group and trigger a late penalty recalculation.

Changing Grades of penalised submssions
It may be necessary to change the original grade of submission that has had a late submission penalty already applied.
Due to the way that penalties are applied (by way of an override to the grade) you must first remove the overridden / penalised grade before you can re-grade the submission.
To to this access the grading screen for the submission and click on the 'Remove Penalty Override' button.
Clicking on Remove Penalty Override does not stop the student incurring a penalty.
It only allows you to unlock the grade so that it can be changed.
If you need to stop the student receiving a late penalty you must grant them an extension or override that means their submission is not late.
You should be returned back to the grading screen with the option to grade the submission available again.
Re-grade the submission appropriately and click on the "Save" button.
The penalty will be re-calculated based on the active due date, override and extension details for the submission and applied to the grade entered.
