Adding Submission Limits
You can limit the number of times a student can submit to your CodeGrade assignment.
By default, students can submit as many times as they want to your assignment in CodeGrade and will get instant automatic feedback every time they do so. You can however limit the number of submissions a student can make. For instance, to enforce thinking time between submissions or if you do not use automatic grading at all.
There are two options, which can be used individually or together: a maximum number of submissions or a cool off period.
The Submission Settings in the CodeGrade Assignment Manager

Setting up a maximum number of submissions:

    1.
    Navigate to the Assignment Management Page and find the Submissions Settings card.
    2.
    In here, scroll down to the Maximum total amount of submissions option and set this to the maximum number you want to allow your students to hand in.
    3.
    Press Submit to save your changes.
Want to set the maximum number of submissions back to the default of infinite? Simply set it to 0 to reset.

Setting up a cool off period:

The cool off period allows for a more advanced way of limiting the amount of submissions a student can upload. Instead of setting a limit for the entire assignment, you can set a limit for a certain time frame in an assignment. This allows you to effectively set an amount of submissions a student may create in a certain time period.
    1.
    Navigate to the Assignment Management Page and find the Submissions Settings card.
    2.
    In here, scroll down to the Cool off period option and set up how many times a student is allowed to submit per which time frame.
    3.
    Press Submit to save your changes.
Cool off period Example:
When the cool off period is set to "2 submissions every 10 minutes", and a student submits at 10:00, and at 10:05 it will be impossible for this student to submit again before 10:10. If the student submits again at 10:11, it will now be impossible to submit again before 10:15.
