I wasn't sure whether to post here or in the Assignment forum.. but i think my query is about Groupings in general.
On a course with a number of non-editing teachers, I have set up a system in which a non-editing teacher is assigned to mark a particular assignment and will receive notifications for only that assignment.
I have followed the guidance here https://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=260368 which was great and I do have it set up and working with the permissions adjusted as suggested (students access all groups/NE teachers do not). Each NE-teacher has their own 'Tutor Group' > students are placed in that group > that group is placed in a grouping. Notifications are only received by the allocated NE-teacher.
For ease (?) I wanted to try placing all students on that course into one 'Student Group' > then add 'Tutor Group' (just the tutor) and 'Student Group' to 'Grouping 1'. However, with this setting, notifications are no longer sent to the tutor when an assignment is submitted nor can they see submissions. If I set to 'visible groups' all NE-Teachers receive the notifications.
Is it to be expected that Groups within Groupings are still treated as separate groups and is there any way around this? I expected the grouping of the two groups would make them one large group with regards to permissions.
Apologies if I have missed something in the notes about this. Any help appreciated!
