      Copy and paste the students' assignment text into your feedback box. Not brilliant as involves more effort and training for teachers.

      Description

      In 1.9 there was an option "comment inline" which copied the students' online text assignment into the feedback box, allowing the teacher to comment directly onto their text- striking through, highlighting in red, etc, in addition to feedback comments. See forum thread here: http://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=207430
      There doesn't seem a way to do this with the online text version of the new assignment module (or if it is available, it is very difficult to find!) All references to "comment inline" in the tracker and QA testing seem to interpret the term differently but I notice in one test MDLQA-1872 Theresa Gibbison actually mentions she does not see the students's submission in the box; yet the test is passed. Many teachers like the 1.9 "comment inline" facility as it helps replicate marking in exercise books or on paper.

      How to reproduce:
      (Compare & Contrast)
      In 1.9
      1)Create an online text assignment and ensure "comment inline" is checked
      2)Log in with a student account and type in some text
      3)Log back in with teacher account and verify that the student's text is included in your feedback box so you could if wished edit/highlight their words
      In 2.3:
      1)Create a new assignment
      2)Ensure "online text" is set to Yes and "Feedback comments" are set to Yes
      3) Log in with student account and type some text
      4) Log back in as a teacher and verify the students' text does NOT appear in feedback box; therefore you can't scribble all over it like in exercise books
