I am currently facing with an issue in an assignment. The professor have this assignment in the course, where the students need to edit some of the contents in the assignments. With their current roles/privileges as students they cannot edit that portion of the assignment. My question is if I give the students non-editing teaching role locally, will that affect them being able to see what other students did for that assignment? Or, would that in some way give them more control than intended for that assignment? I just want to know what would the impact or ramification be before I start giving students non-editing teaching role for that assignment. I hope someone out there had faced this issue before. Thank you very much for the help.
Following Mary to say that, probably, the professor doesn't want students editing something in a textbox because the prof wants to see how the edited version differs from the unedited. In that case, all you need is a file to download and students then upload the edited version.
But, if the prof is using a textbox, you can simply expand the instructions to say "copy this stuff that is in the assignment description, edit it, and paste it into the textbox."
Thank you very much everyone for your feedback and answer. The actual problem was the result of how the activity was setup. After much investigation and tweacking around, I came on how to resolve it. It was only a setting issue. Again, thank you
