I am having a big problem with my moodle course as well. It has recently been upgraded from 2.2.3 to 2.2.7. My students' submissions appear to be being 'lost' and there is a mismatch between what they submit and what I see as being the submission. I have now realised, reading this thread, that a submitted essay response cannot be seen by the educator unless the entire lesson has been completed. Whilst I don't know if this has always been the case, we certainly weren't experiencing any issues last year with students' submissions being 'lost' and there being a mismatch. The problem for us seems to be mostly when there is more than one essay question within a lesson, as students may take a period of time to work through them, and if they don't submit them all in the same lesson sitting then we are having problems. I have set up a test student profile and went through a couple of the lessons and viewed what I could then see in my lesson essays feedback block compared with what I could see in the grade essays section of the eucator view. This is the result:
Lesson-2 Reflective activity 1.2a – TEST STUDENT - I submitted an answer (“test response”) which took me to the next page.
I refreshed the educator view and I could see my test student name with no essays to click on in the grade essays section
Lesson-2 Reflective activity 1.2b - TEST STUDENT – I submitted an answer (“and again”) which took me to the end of lesson page.
I refreshed educator view and I could now see both reflective activity essay responses.
Lesson-2 Reflective activity 1.2a - I went back in to update my previous answer with an addit submission (“updated answer”), then after submitting clicked out of the lesson completely, back to the course page, without completing the lesson.
Educator view still showing only the first two essay responses.
Lesson-2 Reflective activity 1.2a –TEST STUDENT - I went back to the lesson and was given the option of returning to the last viewed page of the lesson, opted for yes, but was taken back to the first content page, and not the last one I saw. I resubmitted a new answer for this essay (“updated answer 2”). I then moved through to Lesson-2 Reflective Activity 1.2b and resubmitted a second answer (“and more”).
Educator view refreshed, showing essay responses “test response” and “updated answer 2” for reflective activity 1.2a. Showing essay responses “And again” and “and more” for reflective activity 1.2b. The essay response “updated answer” is not showing, and this was the response submitted without completing the lesson that time.
In test student view in the Lesson Essays Feedback Block, I can view the following responses that were submitted’. 1.2a “test response”, “updated answer”. 1.2b “and again”, “and more”.
As you can see, one of the essay responses has been ‘lost’ in the educator view ("updated answer"), but is not lost in the student view. The response showing in the educator view ("updated answer 2") is ‘lost’ in the student view.
Am I missing something as to why this is occurring? We are feeling quite pressured to resolve this ASAP as we currently have students undertaking our course. It seems that even having the students email their responses to me to submit for them when I choose 'login as' is not going to help. THe content of our course is such that students need to be able to go back through lessons to work on assignments later and access certain parts of the materials. Doing this will potential further 'lose' any previously submitted answers as they may need to 'move' past essay questions (by typing "already submitted") in the essay response box in order to access the information required.
I hope all this makes sense and I appreciate your promptness in responding!
