Moodle 3.2: Exclude a Student from an activity

Applies to: Moodle 3.2.

There may be times when a student misses or cannot submit an assignment because of a family emergency or similar difficulty. A student can be excluded from the assignment so it is not counted in a category total or course grade total. The student's grade is recalculated as if the assignment didn't exist.
