The start date is the date that students are expected to begin working on their coursework. As long as the course is active, the student can work on any activities prior to the start date, but all reporting will be based on the date set as the start date. If not manually changed, it will automatically be set to the date the students were first enrolled in the course.
To follow the steps listed below, you will need to have "Change Start Dates for Multiple Enrollments" and "Manage Enrollments in Bulk" checked under Student Enrollments. To validate your permissions, click here.
District Administrators or someone with the permission to Set District Calendar, should set it up to exclude any days students are not expected to work on the coursework. Setting the calendar will provide more accurate assignment calendars and progress reporting for students.
