Online text assignment
This assignment type asks students to submit text, using the normal Moodle editing tools.
These settings are in addition to the general assignment settings outlined on editing an assignment.
By default, students cannot resubmit assignments once the teacher has graded them. If you turn this option on, then students will be allowed to resubmit assignments after they have been graded (for you to re-grade). This may be useful if the teacher wants to encourage students to do better work in an iterative process.
Email alerts to teachers
If enabled, then teachers are alerted with a short email whenever students add or update an assignment submission.
Only teachers who are able to grade the particular submission are notified. So, for example, if the course uses separate groups, then teachers restricted to particular groups won't receive any notices about students in other groups.
If this option is selected, then the original submission will be copied into the feedback comment field during grading, making it easier to comment inline (using a different colour, perhaps) or to edit the original text. Of course even if the teacher makes inline comments and changes, the student's original submission is kept intact.
If inline comments are not permitted, then the teacher will see the student’s submission and a separate area for making comments.
allows the teachers to present a template for students to fill in their answer, instead of a blank (empty) page. (it is a patch to version 1.9.x : http://tracker.moodle.org/browse/MDL-19299 )
