In a workshop is there a way for either a student to edit their submission or for the administrator to remove it? We cannot do either. there is no "edit your submission"button as others have described. In the file picker, there is no delete nor a delete link as some others have mentioned. I've looked through settings and the phase is in the "submission phase." I've read a lot about how it's dangerous to remove files that are already being linked to but I can't believe that there is no way at all to allow someone to either resubmit, submit another version, edit their submission or allow an administrator to do so. Are you just stuck with the one submission you made?
at the moment, there is no way to remove a submission. However, during the submission phase and before the eventual submission deadline, authors can edit their submission at will. Just hit the Edit submission button below your submission. As an admin, use the "Log in as" feature to edit the submission on behalf of a user.
Thanks. But there must be something configurable. we do not get the edit submission button. we are in submission phase. If I look at submission.php, I can see that it doesn't consider for the particular user it to be editable because $workshop->modifying_submission_allowed($USER->id) returns false.
I've combed the configurables, but I guess I need to dig through the code more. The only thing is we did have it in assignment phase and put it back to submission phase. Could this have "burned in" the fact that assignments are not modifiable any longer since they may have been assigned to others?
Yep, figured it out - it was a configurable. Even though we had late submissions allowed check it would not allow this since the submission period had passed. Changed the last submission date and the edit button appeared. Thanks all.
Why is the fact that students can create, but not edit submissions after the deadline "intentional"? Can you explain why both options aren't available? or at least configurable by the instructor?
Because students struggle sometimes with the program, wait to the last minute to submit something, and then fail in doing so.
I'm currently in a bind with workshop, actually.
Several students submitted assignments with their name on it defeating the purpose of anonymous peer review.
I want them to resubmit.
But there are no options to to do this. I've extended the deadline, but I think moodle is automatically allocating submissions locking their work from edits.
How do I stop this automatic allocation so that I can create some space for students to make anonymous their assignments?
I've just disabled the peer review option, went to "random allcoation" and selected the unallocate option.
But students are still unable to change their original submission, this despite me changing the deadline.
As the teacher I can't even go in and delete their submissions.
How can I let students fix their assignments?
Unfortunately, the only option at the moment (in all Moodle 2.x versions) is to switch the workshop temporarily back to the submission phase :-s Be ware that in that case, all students will have an option to amend their submissions.
In the future, teachers will have an option to edit any submissions probably (to cover cases like this) but that is not implemented yet.
I figured it out. There wasn't an obvious button to implement the submission phase, so I mistakenly thought I was already in that phase. It turns out that I wasn't, needed to push the little "ligthbulb" icon. That put the class into submission phase.
So then something is wrong in my situation as I think I've reset everything back to the submission phase.
But Students are still unable to edit, or add to their submissions.
So, to be concrete, how would YOU reset back to the submission phase, if you had to?
We are using Moodle 2.8 and I am just exploring the workshop module for the first time. I'm curious if there's a solution to my question that I just haven't explored yet. But one of the questions I have is , what can the instructor do if all of the students have submitted except 1, and the class is ready for the allocation phase?
It seems the phases is a all or none, and it would be great if there is a way to not hold the whole class back just because 1 student didn't submit yet. I noticed that in the moodle quiz setup there's an "User Override" that works quite well when a specific student needs to be accommodated and needs extra time on a test.
Is a similar User Override feature available in Workshop module that I'm not aware of?
Let me attach a screenshot of the quiz user override (in the Administration Block after you click on the quiz link)
Workshop does not have a similar mechanism yet. However, in this particular case, you could simply allocate existing submissions for assessment, switch the workshop to the allocation phase and enable late submissions in the workshop settings. The result will be:
- All the class can start assess the allocated work.
- The student who had not submitted their work yet would still have a chance to do so.
- You will need to check it regularly and once the last missing work is submitted, you will want to allocate it to peers for assessment.
