One of our ICT teachers has reported strange functional behaviour when she has been marking and adding comments to ASSIGNMENTS. We have looked at the issue and have identified the problem thus:
Once the student has submitted their assignment the teacher can click on GRADE in the STATUS column. This brings up a popup with the text editor. Comments are then added by the teacher and saved, Once saved the status changes to UPDATE. So far so good. LAST MODIFIED column is then updated automatically. The teacher sees the comments have been saved - the first lines of text is also shown in the COMMENT column. (HERE LIES A PROBLEM - SEE LATER) The teacher carries on and adds comments to each students submissions until finished. At the end of her work she clicks on SAVE ALL MY FEEDBACK button. This has the effect of saving the comments as stored in the COMMENT column on the main page, and if this text differs to the comments added in the UPDATE text editor popup, the text in the COMMENT column wins. I have identified and tested this happens and why sometimes text storeed in COMMENTS and text in UPDATE/text editor are the same, and sometimes parts missing or even blank.
The PROBLEM is this - once a CARRIAGE RETURN is added in the UPDATE /text editor it doesn't refresh in the COMMENTS column - thus when you click on the SAVE ALL MY FEEDBACK button, the text in the text editor is lost or parts missing (ie as result of carriage return at the top in the former and after a para of text in the latter. If the text editor was included when the main screen is Saved then this would solve a major problem. This is unusable as it stands. Happy to talk through this - it took a while to work out the behaviour and the ASSIGNMENTS are a great feature otherwise.
Any help appreciated - tried this post a while ago but no solution forthcoming
