When you assign any assessment make sure to give a reasonable cushion between the access date (when student can start) and the due date. This helps you prepare for any unforeseen issues with the assignment that may require you to adjust the assignment's due date/time (or make edits/changes) before it closes on your students.
Note: You can change the due date for only those assignments that are in "In Progress" or "Not Open" status.
