I would like to hear the community voice on a brave idea I have. The example submissions feature make some parts of the Workshop code pretty complex (read: prone to bugs). They needs extra care in access checking, embedded/attached files serving etc. The question is if they are worth of all the required maintenance.
The basic idea behind example submissions was to give teachers a chance to prepare couple of exemplary good and exemplary wrong submissions to highlight frequent mistakes etc. Also it gives students a chance to see how the grading would look like. But it's only partially true. Do teachers really use it for that? And then, in real Workshop, final grades calculation is far more complex. It depends on weights and other parameters set during the evaluation phase. So the only reliable output of the feature is that students can see the grading form in advance. But such a "grading form preview" feature could be implemented in much simpler way.
So, would you miss example submissions? How do you use them in your workshops?
