👩‍🎓 How to edit an assignment.

This article explains how to an edit an already existing assignment on The EverLearner.

Why do we need to do this?

You may decide to change the start date or due date of the assignment, or you may wish to edit the description of the task or who it has been assigned to. In addition to being able to edit assignments, you can cancel an assignment if you prefer. This article here explains how to cancel an assignment.

What comes before?

You must be a Teacher, HoD or Admin on the site and be set up as a teacher in the group to whom the assignment has been set. The assignment must still be active - you cannot edit an assignment that has closed.

If the assignment has not yet opened, you can edit any of the details, however, should the assignment have opened, then you can only edit the due date, the description, whether it is mandatory or not, how many takes are allowed and who it is assigned to. 


  1. Login to your account.
  2. Click on the 'Assignments/Exam' button at the top of your page.
  3. Here you will see all current assignments (under the 'Next assignments' tab).
  4. Click on the pencil icon of the assignment you wish to edit.
  5. Make any changes you wish. Please note, if the assignment is already open, the changes you make to the description will appear as updates and will not override the previous description. 
  6. Click 'Save changes'.
