Bypassing an activity from Managing Students

Frequently Asked Questions:
Is there a way to bypass non-current activities?

Yes, only in the Gradebook can an educator bypass a non-current activity for a student. Reference Bypassing an activity from the Gradebook for steps.

Does bypassing an activity lock the activity?

No. Bypassing the activity does not lock it, it just labels it as "Not Required." Students can still access and complete a bypassed activity from their Course Map. A grade will not display on the Course Map or on the progress report.
