      Description

      If a teacher submits feedback for a student assignment, the student will only see it if either the teacher enters some comments, or submits a grade. If a teacher just uploads a response file, then the student won't see it.

      I've modified mod/assignment/type/upload/assignment.class.php to check to see if there are any files as well, and if so, display the feedback. Other assignment types could probably be modified in a similar way, if necessary.

          We are in our pilot phase of implementing Moodle. This has come up as a major issue. At this time, our teachers are not planning to use the gradebook module. We want to have "paperless" classes and being able to return a file to a student is essential.

          Thanks.

          Yes, it can be a problem. But as long as a teacher submits a comment along with a file, then students will be able to see the file. Alternatively, you could apply the patch above, and it should work for you fine.
