I have a need to use blind grading of submitted PDF files and was looking at using the Assignments activity for that purpose. In my testing, the blind grading works just as I need in that it hides the identity of the student from those reviewing the submissions. The reviewers can mark up the PDF as needed during their review, and I can even use a Grading Guide (Marking Guide) to help the reviewers score the submitted file. However, my question comes down to the grading of the assignment.
Is there a way to release the grades to grade book without revealing the identities of the students?
The problem is that this is an ongoing course. We have students that will register throughout a year, and these are set assignments that all students will need to submit regardless of when they register for the course. So if I reveal the identities of the students that is permanent and the reviewers will then see the identities of the students from that point forward when they review new submissions to the assignment from new students. This is not good.
Is there any way around this? Or is there an activity that I can use other than an assignment that would do this for me?
I am open to any and all suggestions at this point.
I am running Moodle 3.6.2
