When I set an assignment it does not show in the upcoming events block. Calendar entries show and quizzes show but assignments don't.
Having a similar problem after upgrade. New assignments are not registering as events on the Calendar for admin, managers and lecturers. Obviously this error is reflected in the associated blocks and on the dashboard. Funny thing though; students can see the events on their calendar and dashboard.
Cannot find anything in user permissions to explain the behaviour and have tried purging caches to no avail.
This is a serious headache, can't do without this functionality. Help would be very much appreciated.
Should I look at rolling back to 3.3 ?
So the assignments will show in upcoming events for students but staff won't see it? They will see their Reminder to grade by due date?
Thanks for the prompt reply Mary. Unfortunately, nothing is showing up in events, or calendar, for lecturers, managers or admins regardless of setting the "Reminder to grade by" date. No matter what the settings for the assignment, students are the only users who can see any record of the event. Lecturers' dashboard is practically redundant without a useful timeline.
Those with a teacher role in the course should see the assignment on their dashboard course overview block if they've set a reminder to grade by. However in terms of managers and the calendar , you might be interested in this tracker report: MDL-59113 Also, Rick Jerz who reported it has commented in a forum thread about this elswhere on here and you might wish to do a search for that and continue the discussion.
Will do Mary. Many thanks.
However, still think that it would be extremely useful to a lecturer or manager, to be able to see all upcoming events for an individual course from within that course page, on the calendar or upcoming events block. IMHO
I agree with Harry
I'm not seeing the "Reminder to Grade by" date thing as all that helpful.
We need to see what the students see easily rather than having to jump to student view.
I did add a date to the "remind me to grade by" field but the assignment still did not show up on my dashboard.
Also, as others have mentioned, it is very inefficient for teachers to have to switch roles to the student role to see assignments in the Upcoming events block and course calendar. In prior versions of MOODLE, the teacher and student saw activities and events in the Upcoming Events block and Calendar on both their Home page (pulled from all courses enrolled in) and in those blocks on the course page.
Any help you can provide would be most appreciated.
Just to add my two cents to this discussion piece...
- I find it very time consuming and problematic to have to switch to Student Role in order to see the Assignments coming up on the calendar. I am not quite sure why assignments would be omitted from the teacher role whereas quizzes and other assessments are not. I need to know what the students see in order to make sure my calendar is accurate.
- I have tried using the "Remind me to Grade By" feature and it still does not show on my calendar and I have not seen the value in it.
I think an update/change should be made here...just my thoughts.
Just a quick point to note Jason. Assignments with the "Remind me to Grade By" feature enabled will only show up in your Dashboard when a student submits an assignment. It will then appear and display the number of assignments awaiting grades. And, it will only stop displaying after all the assignments have been graded. Very useful feature IMHO.
Do very much agree that all assignments should show up as events on course calendars. Not so sure I want them all on my dashboard though.
The assignments will show up for Students but not Teachers in Moodle 3.3 build. So your students see the upcoming assignments, but the instructor does not. We just upgraded to 3.4 and I am pleased that the assignments are showing up in the Events block once again, and they have added the phrase "is due" prior to the date on your calendar. So it appears "HW #1 is due Friday, January 25, 2018." A nice touch in my opinion.
We have 3.4.2.
If the instructor creates an activity with "restricted access" (based on completing an activity)...the instructor can see the activity in the Calendar, BUT the student cannot.
Is there a way to allow students to see future "restricted" activities?
I wish there was an answer to your question, as I'm having exactly the same problem.
