In the Administration settings for the Assignment plugin, the way to set the default value for "Notify Students" is quite unclear.
Specifically, I have a file upload assignment in my course and I am trying to set the default option for "Notify Students" on the Grading page to "No". So I go to Administration -> Plugins -> Activity Modules -> Assignment -> Assignment Settings and find the option labeled "Default setting for 'Notify students'". But this setting is confusing. It is a single checkbox with the following description:
>Set the default value for the "Notify students" checkbox on the grading form.
First of all, the "Notify students" option on the grading form is not a checkbox--it's a combo box with the options "Yes" and "No".
Second, this default setting has a default of "Yes", but it is supposed to be a setting for changing the default?? How can a default setting itself have a default? How can I change the default setting of this default setting??
I tried saving with the box both checked and unchecked, but neither seem to make any difference.
Is there yet another default setting somewhere I am missing?
Any knowledgeable assistance would be greatly appreciated.
