I have a teacher who wants to have students submit new extra credit assignments each week to the same Extra Credit Assignment module without the students needing to delete the previous submission.
The alternative is for the teacher to create one assignment module per week and have them appear and hide each week, but then the user report would then have all of those assignment modules appear in it. This teacher is looking to have it only appear 1 time, but have a history of all the submissions so students don't need to delete their previous week's submission.
Is something like this possible? Thanks,
How about start from here: https://moodle.net/mod/data/view.php?d=1&rid=93
I am sure you can find one of the presets to suit the "Submitting multiple assignments" easily.
You are welcome to post any question to Database forum.
This should be available as standard in Moodle assignments. In the settings enable the 'attempts reopened' feature and set it to 'manually'.
When grading each submission, just select 'yes' for reopen assignment, then the student will be able to start a new submission (optionally based on their previous submission).
Yes, that is true - then the student does not need to delete the old assignment, it gives them a fresh upload box. This is very nice.
The downside is that the assignment module does not retain the previous upload. So either way, there is only the latest upload displayed on the teacher's end. So I will play around with the other suggestions and see what fits our need here.
Davo -- Thank you!
No, I didn't notice the Previous Attempts summary on the student grading page. I kept looking on the Quick Grade page for this. So yes, Moodle does retain a history of each attempt and a record of each submitted file as well. I didn't notice I had to expand the previous attempts to see the details of each previous submission.
So the submission setting I needed so students can add a new extra credit assignment each week was to have Attempts reopened Automatically and then tell the teachers to expand the "previous attempts" so they can see all previously submitted files.
