To make an assignment for only one student, you will first create an assignment as usual, with the following 2 exceptions.

Recommended: Include "make-up" or something similar in the assignment name to differentiate.

  • Include a Password as part of your Settings
  • Maximum Grade 0.00 (click Save)


By setting the maximum grade to zero, those students not taking the make-up version will not be penalized.

There will still be points/marks values associated with each question.

 

Once the student completes/submits the make-up assignment, you will review the attempt and use the Points/Marks score to determine the final grade by calculating the equivalent score with respect to the Maximum Grade for the original assignment. You will then manually entering that grade in the grade book under the column for the original assignment.

 

For example:

Original assignment was worth a Maximum Grade of 50.00 points

  • Make-up assignment has Maximum Grade of 0.00
  • Suppose there were 25.00 possible points/marks for the make-up assignment (all the individual question values added together); the student scores 23.00/25.00
  • Find the equivalent of 23.00/25.00 out of 50.00 (the Maximum Grade for the original assignment).  23/25 = x/50, or a grade of 46.00
  • Manually enter the equivalent grade (46.00) for the student in the grade book under the column for the original assignment (click Turn Editing On in grade book to manually enter grade)

 

By doing this, students NOT taking the make-up exam will not be penalized and the student(s) taking the make-up exam will not be penalized for not taking the original test.
