We have a small problem. Student uploaded a file in the wrong assignment. We need to delete this file from assignment, but I cannot find a way to do it. Does anybody know how to fix it?
Thank you in advance!
If the submission has been locked so that the student cannot delete it, for example if they have click to submit a final version, it can be reverted to draft by the tutor (see image).
When the student then clicks back into the assignment they will be able to edit (and delete) the existing file and replace it with a new one.
Thank your for your answer, Gordon!
The thing is that I do not see the "Edit" column on my screen. There is no such column in my table. Could you tell how to enable it?
Sorry - the screenshot was from 2.4 as I've been testing blind marking, and I forgot the layout had changed a bit. In 2.3 Edit is on the left hand side of the screen rather than the middle. I'd need to check the earlier versions to see what's different. To reach the screen to edit click on the 'view/grade submissions' link).
Can you clarify which version you are using? I'm pretty sure I had to fix a similar problem in 1.9, but it was a while ago so I'd need to refresh my memory.
p.s. Just to add - if you are unable to edit it via the grade interface it should be possible for the server admin to delete the file directly from the moodledata folder for the course. Not something I'd recommend as good practice, but I think it would work if you've no other way around it.
As far as i can see the solution to this depends on whether the assignment was set with "students must click submit" set to yes or no.
If it is switched to Yes and the student has submitted, you can revert to draft as I suggested before (here is screengrab from 2.3.2).
Once it is reverted the student can then edit the assignment to delete the file and replace with a new one.
If the 'must submit' option is set to no, the revert option is missing from the edit menu but the student should be able to change the file just by editing their submitted assignment to delete it - this YouTube video shows the process
If there is a problem with the student editing because the submission deadline has been passed you could always change the dates to allow the file to be amended.
Hope this helps.
Godon, thank you a lot for your assistance and willingness to help!
I think that I will be able to cope with it with your advices
Best wishes, Ivan
