However, as soon as students click the activity a copy of that file is now in their Projects tab. If the project takes more than one day, they need to open the one in their Projects area, not start the activity over again.
If you want to keep them from working on the project after a deadline, you can log in as a teacher and mark the project complete. You can do this quickly for a large class by using the Filter options.
For example, in this screenshot, I had assigned a project on volume. I used the Filter pull-down to choose project name and then put in my keyword. This will display only student work that matches.
Now once the deadline has been reached, and you click the project to view it, check the Complete box on the right so that students can no longer work on the file. (They can duplicate and start a new version, but it will show the new creation date).
The filter also remains in place, so if you click the RIGHT ARROW button, Wixie will move to the next project matching this keyword.
While a single student may have multiple projects that match, most likely they won’t and Wixie will move to the next student in the class. This makes it really quick to mark and entire class worth of projects “Complete” very quickly.
