Something quite obvious has been brought to my attention due to an impending visit by HMI (UK education inspectorate).
In the upload a single file assignment, students may be given the option to re-submit. Great - but the new submission overwrites the original one. This means that the teacher who failed the student's first attempt cannot actually show the student's original piece of work to substantiate the fail (unless they had saved a copy), should they be required to do so by any kind of external or internal verification/quality process.
I would be pleased to hear that I am wrong about this. If I am right I think it is something that should be considered.
You have just made a powerful argument for using Advanced Uploading of Files with allow deleting set to "No."
Is it possible to have resubmissions open in an "Online Text" assignment but still keep track of all previous posts?
Currently if the student wants to post a new assignment, they edit their original post.
It will be very useful to have the option of keep the trail of postings!
