      Description

      Hello!

      I am using many assignments, mainly with uploaded files.

      What I am looking for is a simple function for a teacher to fully delete submitted assignments, which is currently not possible with Moodle 1.8.2.

      The functionality should be the same like with tests. A teacher can select several assignments for deletion, and after that the uploaded user files and all other database entries related to these assignments (marks, comments) are deleted.

      Additionally all assignments should be automatically deleted (database entries and uploaded user files) by resetting a course, and also by deleting users from a course.

      Kind regards, Daniel

          We have a similar request. Being able to delete submitted assignments and delete assignment completely. Any news on this feature being a reality or a "work around"?

          I'd like asignments to be deleted when the user's logon is deleted. His work should remain within a course if he is merely un-enrolled - and re-instated to him when he (or she of course) is re-enrolled. A Teacher should be able to delete individual items or whole assignments.

          I think that resetting a course should have the option of "checkpointing" users' work in some kind of archive so that a student re-enrolling could be reconnected to his work. Finally the checkpoint files should be deletable.

          My reasons for the above are to support the year end activity between cohorts - Year 7 becoming Year 8 and final leaving of students - their work would be checkpointed and kept for say a year.

          I agree, I am in need of the same feature. Students often accidently submit an assignment and although I delete the particular assignment, they are still unable to resubmit it. Usually I use the advanced assignment.

          The same problem exists in version 1.9.3. When creating a new course it is a good practice to try all features. We submitted an assignment as a test from a temproary student and now we cannot erase it.
          This is really an urgent issue.

          We have a lot of students using Moodle. We need a way to delete submitted assignments-especially if they are just text assignments and/or multiple assignments. It would also be great if a student has to re-take the class, that he/she can be added with the option of bringing back the old scores/assignments or NOT.

          Thank you, and these suggestions would greatly enhance your product...

          We have several schools using moodle and this is a common problem between them. We just need a delete button on the assignment review screen for teachers. Have there been any developments on this issue?

          It is not sufficient to be able to delete files, you need to be able to reset everything, including dates and grades. We do have students who have to repeat units. We don't want data carried over.

          I aggree with James. We need the same feature. Students often accidently submit an assignment and we need to delete the assignment. Also the date stamp is left in the assignment, even if the uploaded file was deleted.

          Furthermore the summary screen still shows, that where was submitted 10 files, and all 10 files was deleted, in the summary view still shows, that already 10 files was submitted (which is not true, since I deleted them)...

          We’re running Moodle 2.2.1. I tried submitting a file to an assignment as a test. But not being a student in the course, the submission is not visible when looking at all submissions! When looking at my submission, there is a link “View 1 submitted assignments”, but the result is blank. After actual students submit, all of them are visible but not myself and my test submission.

          Tangentially, can you please check the numeric value of the number of submissions and if it’s one, use the singular phraseology? That is, this should read “View 1 submitted assignment” rather than “View 1 submitted assignments”.

          Thanks

          It would be really useful if there was a "delete" button. I am using moodle as an intranet for my Scout District as a place to upload forms so we can go camping. Obviously we go camping a lot so need a new form each time we go. We can only submit 1 form which isn't practical.

          I add my vote to this suggested improvement. The ability to delete or clear submitted assignments would be beneficial in cases where an incorrect assignment was submitted.

          I add my vote to this feature. I recall it being available in earlier versions of Moodle, but no longer exists in version 2.5. It would be highly beneficial for instructors to be able to delete/clear an incorrectly submitted file for the student.

          I put some code in MDL-37237. Maybe these tracker issues should be linked? One is the new assignment module, and the other the new one?

          I am closing this issue as we are not going to add new features to the old assignment module any more. As indicated, this is being worked on in another issue related to the new assignment.
