Note: You are currently viewing documentation for Moodle 3.3. Up-to-date documentation for the latest stable version of Moodle is probably available here: Assignment FAQ.

How can I find assignments which have not yet been graded?

On the assignment submissions page, sort the assignments by Last modified (Teacher) by clicking on the column title. Assignments which have been graded have Update in the status column, whereas those that haven't been graded have Grade in the status column.

Why can't I edit grades for assignment submissions?

If you edit assignment grades directly in the gradebook, an "overridden" flag is set, meaning that the grade can no longer be edited from the assignment submissions page.

If required, the flag can be removed by turning editing on in the grader report, then clicking the edit grade icon, unchecking the overridden box and saving the changes.

How can a selected outcome be removed from an assignment?

To remove previously selected outcomes (which appear greyed out on the update assignment page):

Deleting the test outcome from the upload file assignment
  1. Follow the Grades link Administration block in the course.
  2. Select edit categories and items from the gradebook dropdown menu at the top-left of the page.
  3. Locate the assignment for which the outcome is to be removed. The outcome is listed directly below it.
  4. Click the delete icon opposite the outcome.

Why can't my students see the response file I've posted to their assignment?

At this time, Moodle does not show the teachers' response file if any of the following conditions are present:

  • The students assignment submission has not been graded by the teacher.
  • The teacher has not posted a comment to the student's assignment.

As a workaround, simply grade the assignment or provide a comment on the assignment submission and the corresponding response file will appear on the student's assignment submission page normally. For more information on this behavior, see MDL 16553

Can students be notified of submission via email or message?

I assign a lot of single file assignments to students. Is there anyway a student can be told they made a successful submission?

Not in standard install of Moodle.

Can I download all submitted assignments at once?

Users with the required permissions (e.g. those with a Teacher role) can access the 'View [n] Submitted Assignments' page, on which there is a link to 'Download All Assignments As A Zip'.
