It looks as if there are two locations to place comments when grading but I don;t see the settings for them. One seems to allow a conversation of comments, the other is only for me to send a comment to the student.
Since I have other methods for students to contact me, and I rarely see the comments when an assignment is submitted, I would prefer to prevent the student from leaving a comment within Moodle at all. Can this be done?
I do not see the one-way comment block that used to be on the far right of the Quick Grading page. Did it get switched off?
In the settings for an assignment, I see "Feedback Types:  feedback comments " and below that I see "Comment inline [yes]" but the "help" option doesn't. If there is some other location to check, please tell me where to go.
