Did you know that Moodle offers a way for students to make multiple attempts on an assignment activity? One of the options within the Assignments settings allows instructors to better identify and organize multiple attempts on a single assignment. There are a couple reasons why an instructor might choose to do this. If you have an assignment where you allow students to resubmit until they hit a certain criteria, this option allows you to do this. Another reason an instructor might use this feature is to organize multiple paper drafts. In this week’s blog post I have linked a video that I made that steps instructors through allowing multiple attempts on an assignment. The video is somewhat specific to how you might choose to handle multiple paper drafts, but this tool can be used in other ways as well.
The solution I offer here attempts to address the organizational mess that handling multiple paper drafts for multiple students can be. Please see this 16 min video and if you are interested in incorporating this next semester, I am happy to help you get the assignment set up to do what you want.
