We have academics using the Assignment activity in Moodle 1.9 to set, collect and mark coursework essays. They are keen to use paperless marking, so want to use the gradebook to hold the class' marks and feedback comments.
However, for summative assignments, the marks should not be published until they have been moderated. We can suppress the email notification in Moodle 1.9, but is there a way of putting an embargo on the marks until a given date, so students can't see their marks until after they are moderated?
Do we need formative and summative versions of Assignments, or a 'publish to students' flag in the gradebook? How do other institutions get round this?
