Allow students to clear their own assignment submission attempts (before the due date/time)

    Under review

    I teach a programming course where students attach and submit code files in Blackboard assignments. Frequently throughout the semester, a student uploads the incorrect file or realizes they made a mistake before the due date and request their attempt be cleared. This has to be done by me, the instructor. I am suggesting that we allow the student to do this. It could be implemented as a checkbox in the assignment details/settings page that instructors could set. The student could clear their attempt by clicking on it and then perhaps a button labeled "clear attempt."


    The alternative of allowing multiple attempts is not ideal since it populates my "needs grading" page with multiple attempts when I am only concerned with the latest one.
