We have an external auditor who needs to view annotated assignments but should not be able to make any changes. We've not found any system settings to allow this so it's affecting our authenticity of assignments. Does anyone know if this is possible on Moodle 3.3.1?
On the 'view all submissions' page, under the 'Annotate PDF' column, there are 2 links (per student), the first of these links allows you to download a PDF with all the annotations embedded in it.
You can download this file and give it to the external auditor, without them needing any access to the Moodle site at all.
Thanks very much for your response and it is a possible temporary solution however if we have 60 learners all submitting 10 to 15 assignments, it will take too long to download one by one. Our verifier will need to select 10% of the total amount of learners and look at all marked assignment for each learner. Being able to view on screen will be more helpful so maybe Moodle can consider this for future development.
Do you perhaps have any other possible options/solutions?
If we could do this it would be perfect for what we need. The provider hosting our Moodle site have tried creating a new role but they can't seem to figure out how to view the annotated pdf without being able to change the grades. They are still trying to work it out so hopefully they will find a solution soon. Thanks for your response.

An update on the verifier role: We have created a user from scratch and have been putting it through testing, but to this point, we still finding the same thing- to view an annotated PDF you have to have grading rights and if we remove the grading rights, you can view the original submission, but not the annotated submission. We have tried tweaking the roll as much as we can and going through further testing, but we still have the same issue, no matter what other settings we change at this point.
Hi Davo - when I do click on the view annotated pdf the screen stays blank. Have you encountered anything like this before? If you go through the grade button it is there but not when you click on the link to view.
Does anybody know if there is a setting on Moodle where you can allow viewing of annotated pdf documents but remove access to the grade button?
