I was wondering if there is any way to have students complete multiple submission boxes in the workshop module.
If not, I would love this as a feature to be added in the future. The workshop module would be excellent for me to use as a way of submitting my students' lab reports. I think having multiple places where students could submit their responses will help scaffold the assignment for students who struggle more. I could see a format like this:
- 1st submission box - contains the objective for the lab
- 2nd submission box - contains the procedure for the lab
- 3rd submission box - contains the data
- 4th submission box - contains sample calculations
If submissions were done this way, then students could also assess each submission box separately. Currently, if a student submits his/her whole lab report, then the assessing student must grade all parts at once. If submissions could be chunked apart then the assessing student could also break apart their assessment of the work. (Separate rubric for the first submission box, the second submission box, etc).
It would be nice to have the option to either have all submission boxes on one page, or have different submission boxes on different pages (just like how you can arrange quiz questions in the quiz module). It would also be nice if you could open and close different submission boxes at different times (the pre-lab submission box is open for a few days, then the lab part is open while pre-lab is closed, etc.)
I think many uses would come of this. For example, I could also see teachers using the multiple submission boxes as a way to give students essay questions and wanting other students to grade the work. Students could then assess each question separately.
I voted for the template in MDL - 38899 and I think my higher achieving students would be okay with the template. However, my struggling students would need more scaffolding like I have explained above.
If multiple submission boxes is already possible (or something like it), please let me know. Else, could I suggest this gets added to tracker?
(As a side note, is it also possible to incorporate some sort of plugin for plagiarism between submissions across the workshop?)
