Assignment feedbacks: Mahara Assignment Feedback
Mahara Assignment Feedback Plugin
This feedback plugin offers a purely supporting role to its submission sibling. It allows Moodle to automatically release submitted Mahara portfolio pages once they have been graded.
If you are using Moodle 2.7 or later you do should not install this plugin. The same functionality is handled by the submission plugin itself.
See the installation instructions for the Mahara assignment submission plugin.
Once you've installed the Mahara assignment submission plugin, this plugin can be installed via the normal method, either using the Moodle web installer, or extracting the plugin to mod/assign/feedback/mahara.
Older versions of this plugin (for Moodle 2.5 and earlier) required an additional local plugin to be installed in Moodle. If you have installed that local plugin, you can uninstall it once you have updated the assignment submission plugin and the assignment feedback plugin to the version for Moodle 2.6.
Create a Moodle assignment. On the assignment config page, under the "Feedback" section, you'll see an option for "Mahara feedback". If you activate this option, then the Mahara pages & collections submitted by students, will be automatically unlocked when the page/collection is graded. (Without this plugin, the page/collection remains locked from editing in Mahara, permanently.)
If you set the Mahara submission option to not lock pages on submission, this plugin will have no effect. (Because there will be nothing to unlock.)
