This page discusses how the extension request function will work. This feature is new to Myplace for academic year 2019/20.
Covid 19 Coronavirus
There is now an option to request an extension for reasons related to Covid 19 Coronavirus measures currently in place.
How will it work?
You cannot make a decision on an extension request you have raised yourself!
It is understood that staff may wish to 'have a go' with the extension request system in their playground site or elsewhere. However, you cannot make a decision on an extension request you have raised yourself. In this situation, we would suggest that you enrol a colleague in your class who can make a submission for you to practice on.
Who will get the notification emails?
The default position is that any staff with the following roles on a Myplace class will get the notifications:
- Class Administrator
There are two further options for configuring the routing of the notifications, which can be implemented at a Faculty or Department/School level, by contacting Myplace Support. The options are:
- Provide an email address (or addresses) to which the notifications can be routed
- Restrict the notifications to different or fewer Myplace roles
Who can approve the request?
The default position is that any staff with the following roles on a Myplace class are able to approve an extension request:
- Class Administrator
Alternatively, individuals the Extensions Approver role can be allocated to individuals of a faculty or department/School's choice. The allocation and management of this role is explained further in the Extension Management Administration page.
Extension Request Report
Disabling the Extension Request Function
Retrospectively Granting Extensions (or Granting Extensions for Students who haven't Requested)
For Group Submission Assignments an "extension" must be actioned by creating a Group Override for the group the requester is a member of.
Once created, the "Recalculate Late Penalties" action should be done against all members of the group.
