How To: Enable Drafts / Send for Marking on Assignments
NOTE: This feature is only available on the “Advanced Uploading of Files” assignment type.
You may find yourself wanting students to submit a draft prior to their final submissions on assignments. This will give you the opportunity to download the file, upload the marked file once you have reviewed it and leave feedback for the students prior to their final submission.
One of the drawbacks of using the “Send for marking” feature is student’s can accidentally submit their final submission when they just trying to submit a draft.
To enable this feature navigate into the assignment and click on “Update this Assignment” in the top right. This will take you to the settings page for the assignment.
Scroll down to the “Advanced Uploading of Files” section and select either Yes or No from the drop down box to the right of “Enable Send for Marking.”
Once you have made your selection scroll down to the bottom of the page and either select “Save and return to course” or “Save and display.”
