Student Projects is a new assessment type targeted to allow learners to create assignments themselves and which are shared only with them. Learners can create a 'Student Project' in a classroom in which this feature is enabled. Then, as an instructor, you can view and edit the Student Project, if required, before publishing it for the learner to attempt. Once the learner submit the attempt, you can then grade it.
By default any Student Project created in the classroom will be in draft state until you publish them. Before publishing you can edit the Student Project as per your requirement.

Let's see how can you edit a Student Project.
