How can I stop students from editing submitted assignments after the due date?
5
I had a class submit an assignment on a certain date. However a student subsequently edited his document, which I didn't want anyone to be able to do as it was for exam purposes. I assumed that a due date would make the documents uneditable which was not the case. How can I make sure that this won't happen for other assignments going forward?

This literally makes zero sense for the students to be able to access after submission or after a due date. There is no way we can lock an assignment either which is insane.

I agree. There needs to be a lock feature on student submission. We can request a resubmission if the need would arise so therefore there needs to be a lock assignment capability.

I agree as well. Students are now unsubmitting and re-editing constantly, and a teacher should not need to check multiple times. If an assignment has a due date, the student should upload his final version and only that version needs to be reviewed by the teacher, unless you decide as a teacher to give it back and allow the student to hand in a new version. Can you please update this ?

This is a must have and I consider a serious oversight the lack of such feature.
