  5. Select the
    • "Has Due Date" checkbox
    • "Has Start Date" checkbox
    • "Has End Date" checkbox

  6. Use the provided fields to set your dates.
    In most instances, the end date is the same as the due date.  However, if you want to accept late assignments, the end date would be set to the last day you will accept assignments.  Assignments submitted after the due date and before the end date, would be marked late and you could assess the assignment accordingly.
