Dear Moodle Developers,
I really appreciate your contributions for Moodle. Our University is using Moodle as our key VLE platform.
The assignment activity is most frequently used. But one of our faculty found that the attempt settings in assignment is not working well. For example, if I change the setting of 'notify students' from 'No' to 'Yes', and save the changes, when I click back, the setting for 'notify students' is still 'No'. Could you please help with this? Thanks.
When grading a student's work, you can choose, for that particular update, whether or not to notify the student about that change.
If you say 'Yes', then the student will be notified that you have changed their grade or given feedback.
If you say 'No', then there will be notification message.
Next time you grade that student, you again have a choice as to whether or not the student should be notified about this new update. The choice is not saved permanently, because the choice only applies to the particular bit of feedback you are sending right now.
If you want to change the default for whether or not students should be notified about changes, then edit the assignment settings and change the 'Default setting for "Notify students"' in the 'Notifications' section of the settings. An administrator can set the default (for this default) in the plugin settings for the assignment module.
Thanks a lot for your quick response. I really appreciate your help and detail answer. I've found the default setting for 'Notify students'. It works.
