2.4 When students submit a quiz, they can be sent the general feedback automatically and immediately on their efforts, with any specific feedback coming later from the marker.
I want the same facility to be available for assignments. The students would then receive the model answer immediately and digest that before the tutor gives specific feedback.
I cannot find this facility currently available. Is there a tracker on this, or should I create one?
Hi Velson, you need to use the conditional activity feature http://docs.moodle.org/24/en/Conditional_activities_settings.
Add the model answer as a page or document, then set its access to be restricted until the student has submitted their assignment.
Thank you for the lead - it is a new feature since 1.9 which I was using previously. There is a continual improvement (and complexity) of Moodle.
Although my hosting site has allocated me Super Administrator status, I am not able to see Advanced features. A job for Monday.
The guidance given on the page you indicate does not give the options available in the drop down menus.
Presumably one of the options for "completion" is the student uploading the assignment file. I do not want the feedback to the student to be delayed until it has been graded. There are no time limits on submitting the assignments.
How is the student alerted to the newly available document when access has been granted?
Yes the activity completion options vary according to the type of activity module but file submission is definitely an option for an assignment.
in your model answer restrict access settings you define its visibility prior to the student having met its access condition. I suggest using the "show greyed out with restriction information" option so it is clear their file submission will release the model answer. You may also want to add some explanatory text in a label and/or within the assignment description. If you use auto linking when you refer to the model answer in assignment description, the student will be able to click the link to view the model answer as soon as they have submitted the file for marking.
Hi David, I'm having this issue too. And I think that the reply that you've posted maybe will help me.
The problem is that, the conditionals that I can set to my document are:
- Date range
- User field
- Assignment grade
If I choose Assignment grade, the teacher must submit a grade to let the student see the document. So, It cant be set that only by submitting the assignment the student is allowed to access the document.
What I want to do is let the student get a document with the solution of the assignment inmediately after submitting the assignment. As it is an automatic process, the teacher doesn't have to grade the assignment.
Is this possible? Am i skipping something or doing something wrong?
Thanks in advance
Moodle version: 2.6.2+
Is it possible to have an automated feedback.reply, just based on activity completion?
When I leave out score information on the form, I get an error.
Thanks in advance,
