I have just upgraded to Moodle 2.6.2 and have been investigating the function to allow you to allocate grading of assignments to particular tutors. The course I am working on has 7 assignments - 1 each for 7 modules. I have worked out how to assign particular submitted assignments to a tutor within a module, but what I really want to do is allocate e.g. all module 1 assignments to Tutor 1, all module 2 assignments to module 2 etc., prior to them being submitted. That way, only the tutor marking that module's assignment would get the submission notification emails. As it stands now, all tutors get all submission emails, even though they are only to mark certain modules.
It appears the new allocation function only allows you to allocate marking once all students are enrolled on the course. Much easier for me if I could set up allocation of module assignments before hand.
