It does indeed. The setting "Automatically assign zero scores to past-due activities" is present within the course's settings and will trigger auto flunking once the current date passes on activities within the student's enrollment date range.
Follow up question: If you remove the Auto-assigned zeroes, will the overdue zeroes go away automatically? If so, is there a lag time, or a requirement for the students to log in for that to change?
Ken Krummenacker the auto flunked scores will not be removed if the auto flunk course setting is disabled. The teacher will need to go to the activity grader for all students and clear the auto flunked scores.
Thanks, Brian. Also- I have seen others mention it, so I will add as well: Auto-zeroed assessments still show in the Calendar with a green check mark. Confuses students! Would be great if y'all could make it obvious that it is overdue and still incomplete some other way!! Please pass that to whomever ;)
I 100% agree that students which do not complete assignments and earn zeros should NOT receive a green checkmark. These assignments should not be marked completed in anyway. It would be nice if the green check could be removed. It would even be better if the green checkmark could be removed and be replaced with a red x if a zero is automatically entered.
I don't have this setting enabled in my class so I can't test this myself, but you can probably stop the assignments from being marked complete.
When you make a new activity, the default completion setting is to mark as complete when the assignment is submitted. The zero is red (as opposed to black) because the 0 score was submitted.
Change the completion requirement to "receives a passing score." Since a 0 isn't passing, the activity shouldn't be marked as complete and should also stay in the student's to-do list.
If this works, I doubt it would be retroactive to activities already marked complete. Also, I don't see this as a setting under the bulk update, so every activity would need to be changed individually. If you have a master course you could just change it there and the setting should flow through to the individual courses.
Hopefully, someone from Agilix will correct this if I'm wrong.
