Hi, I set up a staff training course on Moodle with several single upload assignments. To demonstrate uploading, on the first assignment I submitted a random text file. Because I was the teacher (I'm also administrator, but I had no other enrollment on the course), I did not appear on the grading page.
However I noticed a few things:
- 6 students submitted assignments but when I opened the assignment the link in the top right said "View 7 submitted assignments".
- If I visited the "My Home" page, it insisted that I had one assignment ungraded when all visible submissions were graded.
- Although I could delete the file (open the assignment and Update my submission, I saved changes without attaching a file) it still counted it as a submission, and wouldn't let me delete my submission.
I enrolled myself as a student and graded my submission, just to get rid of the "1 assignment ungraded" notification, but it seems odd that I can't clear out this submission, or that as a teacher, my submission is still "counted" even though it isn't available for grading.
If this happened in one of our main courses, it could mess up the statistics to have teacher/ demonstration submissions "counted" when they shouldn't be. Is there a way to get rid of this submission?
PS: apologies for the lack of screenshots, I can recreate and submit images if necessary
I was having the same issue and I haven't found a way to fix it directly but I found a workaround that may help you.
However, this will only work if you don't mind losing the student submissions and getting them to upload them again. (You can download all submissions first)
If you backup the course then restore it with no user data for that assignment then it will revert the submissions back to zero.
Luckily for me these were only all tests so I was able to do this.
Dear Moodle Programmers and Users,
The Same Problem still not solved. I have the same bug reported by Alicia.
And trick by Ailsa is not good, because , as a teacher I only needed to delete the file of just one student. please reply asap.
