Solution overview (Grading Table)

Solution overview (Grading Table)

RWTHmoodle provides graders for each assignment a tabular overview of all students and their submissions for each assignment. The table shows, among other things, the status of the submissions, the submission and feedback files and enables the start of the grading.

1.  Call up submission overview

RWTHmoodle provides graders for each assignment a tabular overview of all students and their submissions for each assignment. You can access the overview this way:

  1. Click on the name of the assignment on the course page.
  2. Click on the button "View all submissions".
 

2. Submission status

In principle, the assignment overview contains all students in the course room, regardless of whether they have submitted a solution for the assignment or not. However, the column "Status" shows in which status a submission is. Customized submission deadlines for individuals or groups are also displayed here.

For example, if you have configured the assignment so that students must press the submit button to submit a submission for grading, then you will see for individual students whether they have already created a submission, whether the submission is still in draft status, or whether it has already been submitted for grading.

 

3. Filtering submissions

Graders can filter the submission overview. To do so, click a "Filter" drop-down menu below the table in the "Options" section. Here you can filter the table by the following criteria:

  • Not submitted (includes both no submission and drafts not submitted)
  • Submitted
  • Requires grading
  • Granted extension

If you have activated the marking workflow when configuring the assignment, you can additionally filter the submissions according to the status of the marking workflow using the workflow filter.

If you have activated the group mode "Separate groups" or "Visible groups" in the task settings under "Common module settings", a drop-down menu will also appear above the submission list that lists all groups available in the learning space. If you have selected an additional grouping when activating the group mode, the drop-down menu will only show the groups of this grouping. You can use the menu to filter the delivery list by group.

 

4. Download all submissions

If "File submissions" is selected as the submission type in the assignment settings, graders can use the Download All Submissions menu at the top of the page to download the submitted files as a ZIP archive and grade them offline.

Please note

Please note that the option "Download all submissions" in the submission overview (grading table) no longer works if files were submitted via access-controlled links in Sciebo. The ZIP file containing the submissions will no longer open.  Therefore, only use access-controlled links in scenarios where files are to be submitted that exceed the maximum submission size of 250 MB.

If you have a large number of submissions, or if the submissions are very large, the ZIP file creation process may take too long and crash. In this case, reduce the number of submissions you want to download and download them gradually.

Alternatively, you can also download the submissions using an API function. You can reach the necessary information this way:

  1. Click on your name in the upper right corner and select the "Settings" option.
  2. Then click on "Security keys".
  3. In the security key table you will also find the key for the "Moodle mobile web service".
  4. After clicking on "Documentation" behind the web service you will get to the list of API functions.
  5. To download the submissions you need the function "mod_assign_get_submissions". By clicking on the corresponding entry you will get the necessary code.
 

5. Allocate submissions to particular markers for grading

If you want to allocate the grading of the submissions among several graders, use group submissions and assign specific groups to individual makers. The graders can then filter the submission overview according to the groups assigned to them. To do this, the "Groups" option must be set to "Visible groups" or "Separate groups" when configuring the assignment under "Common module settings". In addition, the appropriate grouping must be selected. See the instructions for Group Assignments.

Please note

Note that if you use blind marking (see below), the grading is not truly anonymous because the submission is anonymized but not the membership in a group.

Alternatively, you can use the marking workflow (see Adding an Assignment). In this mode, you can assign each submission to a grader. This approach is particularly suitable if the expertise of different people is required for the grading.

 

6. Lock submissions

Before you start grading after the submission cut-off date, switch to "Prevent submission changes" for all students in the "Edit" column.

  1. Select several/all students in the "Selection" column.
  2. Then, under the table, in the "With selected..." menu, select "Lock submissions".
 

This step is only necessary if you have defined the submission deadline using the "Due date" setting when configuring the assignment. Only then can students continue to work on their submission after the deadline has passed. On the other hand, this step is not necessary if you have defined the deadline as the date of the last possible submission. In this case, the submissions are automatically blocked for further processing.

 

7. Allow submission changes for editing

Likewise, you can release the submission for editing again by selecting the "Allow submission changes" option.

To release an individual submission, proceed as follows:

  1. Search for the correct submission in the table and click "Edit".
  2. Then select "Allow submission changes".

To release multiple submissions at once, proceed as follows:

  1. In the "Selection" column, select all students whose submissions you want to reset to draft status.
  2. Then, below the list of submissions, click the drop-down menu next to "With selection..."
  3. From there, select "Unlock submissions" and click the "Go" button.
 

8. Revert the submission to draft (submission button)

If you have set the assignment configuration to require students to press the submit button, you can reset solutions submitted for grading back to draft mode so that these students can revise their submissions.

To reset an individual submission to draft status, do the following:

  1. Locate the correct submission in the table and click "Edit."
  2. Then, select "Revert the submission to draft".

To reset multiple deliveries to draft status at once, do the following:

  1. In the "Selection" column, select all students whose submissions you want to reset to draft status.
  2. Then, below the list of submissions, click the drop-down menu next to "With selection..."
  3. From there, select "Revert the submission to draft status" and click the "Go" button.

If in the configuration of the assignment in the section "Submission settings" the setting "Attempts reopened "is set to "Automatically until pass" and a grading below the pass limit is entered, then the submission will automatically be reset to draft mode as soon as the grading is saved. The same applies if the setting "Attempts reopened" is set to "Manually" and the grader sets the setting "Allow another attempt" to "Yes" in the grading table.

 

9. Overriding assignment deadlines (Due date)

If a submission deadline (due date) has been set in the assignment configuration, then managers can extend it for individual students or groups.

  1. In the Selection column, select all students whose submissions you want to reset to draft status.
  2. Then, below the submission list, click the drop-down menu next to "With selected..."
  3. From there, select "Grant extentions" and click the "Go" button.
  4. Select the new submission dates and click "Save Changes".
