For example, one assignment is a reading log due after the first and last 6 weeks of the semester. Some section leaders would like these logs submitted only on the deadlines. Others would like to be able to check in on a weekly basis to help deter students from "binge reading".
I've set up two group enabled assignments with the appropriate deadlines and enabled resubmitting. The idea is that section leaders can indicate to their students whether to submit only at the deadline or to resubmit each week.
Drawbacks are as follows:
- teachers must "grade" each check-in so that students may resubmit the following week
- (30 students per section X 4 sections submitting weekly X 12 weeks) + 3 sections submitting only at deadlines = 1620 excel reading log submissions on the server for one class. That's a lot of log.
so as not to clutter the server and to allow for more streamlined checks. Any suggestions?
PS - This is one of those situations where it would be great to either have the metacourse transparency or section/sub-section ability being discussed in other forums.
