Assignment - allow teacher submission
 

Hi,

I wonder if anyone might be able to help? I've got an assignment where I want teachers to be able to submit work on behalf of students.

I've previously been able to do this by getting teachers to 'view all submissions' and then select 'edit submission'. Teachers could then upload work on behalf of their students.

However, since upgrading to Moodle 3.1 the 'edit submission' option doesn't seem to be available to teachers/admin.  This is what I see instead:

Edit submission missing?


I've thought this must be a permission setting, but I've checked roles and also looked through other options and I can't seem to fix it.

Any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Found the answer - adding here in case anyone else experiences the issue.

It was a permissions issue but I had to find the hidden permission:

Edit another student's submission

Thanks for replying with the solution Andrew - I read your first post and was just about to point you in the direction of the docs when I read your second post and discovered you'd solved it yourself smile
