Manage Dates Tool for Assignment

Manage Dates Tool

Note: Using the Manage Dates tool for Assignment and Quiz items adjusts the start and end date access. Students can see these items, but not access them until the dates you set in Manage Dates. Using the Manage Dates tool is recommended for Discussions, Quizzes and Assignment items. Setting Start and End Dates on Content and Grade items is not generally recommended as it can interrupt the ability of students to see important information in the course.
