This activity allows students to submit work for teachers to grade and give feedback on.
Students will be able to submit any digital content (one or mutiple files), such as documents, media content or spreadsheets. Alternatively, students might be able to submit their work typing directly into the Text Editor.
A student can submit as an individual or as a member of a group.
Use this activity to provide grades and feedback using online assessment tools such as:
Grade (point, scale, or advanced grading criteria).
Anonymous submissions (hides the students' identity from markers).
Marking workflow (set different marking stages and release grades at once).
Marking allocation (allocate marker to students).

Remind me to grade by
Set an expected date for marking to be completed by. A reminder will be displayed on the Dashboard page in the Timeline block.
Tick the preferred submission type option.
File submissions: allow students to upload one or more files.
Media collection: enable students to choose a gallery as their submission. To enable this submission type, you must already have added a Media collection activity to your course (see info panel).
Add a Media collection activity to your course for students to create galleries and upload their media content.
2. Make sure you have selected either Assignment collection or Peer reviewed assignment collection as the Collection type in the Media collection settings page.
3. After uploading their content into the Media collection activity, students can then navigate to their Assignment activity to select and submit their created galleries.
Students must create their galleries and add content from the Media collection activity or they will not be able to submit.
Online audio (PoodLL): allow students to record audio as part of their submission.
Online text: students will be able to type text directly into the Moodle text editor field for their submission.
Maximum number of uploaded files
Allow students to submit one or multiple files.
Accepted file types
Set further restrictions on the types of files that can be uploaded.
Provide feedback in the following ways:
Allows graders to leave comments.
Allows graders to annotate online using comments, stamps and other features.
Offline grading worksheet
This is useful if you wish to download the grading list and edit it in a program such as MS Excel. When the marker has completed their grading offline, they can then upload the spreadsheet, confirm the changes and the grades and comments will be transferred over into Moodle's Gradebook:
Allows graders to upload files with feedback when marking. These files may be the marked student assignments, documents with comments, a completed feedback form and marking criteria. Feedback files can be uploaded individually or in bulk.
If enabled, students will have to click on the Submit button to declare their work as final, otherwise it will be marked as a draft.
Determine how students' attempts are re-opened.
Manually: the teacher will manually need to enable the student to re-submit.
Automatically until pass: the student will be able to re-submit until the set passing grade is achieved.
Set how many times can a student re-submit.
Group submission settings
Students submit in groups
If set to Yes, students will submit as members of a group according to the Groups set in the course. This means that only one member of the group needs to submit on behalf of the group.
Grouping for student groups
If required, select the appropriate grouping.
Note: This option will only be available once a grouping has been created.
Turnitin plagiarism plugin settings
If set to Yes, Turnitin will generate a similarity report for each submission.
Store students papers
If set to No repository, the students' submitted papers won’t be stored in Turnitin’s database. If set to Standard repository,papers will be stored to make similarity checks for future submissions.
If this last option is chosen, make sure your students continue to re-submit in the same assignment activity. If students submit the same or similar paper on another course, they will get a report indicating self-plagiarism (100% similarity).
If this assignment does not need either grading or feedback, set the grade to None. Set Point for a numeric grade or select a Scale.
This is enabled by default so the students' identity will be hidden from markers, that is, everyone with a Teacheror Teacher (Editor) role.
Managers will see the identities by default.
Once set, this cannot be undone.
Use marking workflow
This is enabled by default. This will help you control the stages of marking.
