      Description

      After grading an assignment and providing feedback, if the teacher then goes to the grade book and views the grades in the edit view, the feedback will not be present.
      If the teacher then enters feedback in the grade book, this feedback will not be present in the assignment area.

      Replication steps:

      1. Create an assignment with the new assign mod.
      2. Grade a students assignment and type in some feedback.
      3. Go to [Settings ► Grader report], turn on editing and select the graded mark.
      4. Notice that no feedback is shown.
      5. You can enter some feedback here and save it.
      6. Going back to the assign module and viewing the feedback there will show that the text entered from the grade book is not present.

          I was able to replicate half of this.

          I turned the quick feedback option to yes in the Grader report options, but I was able to edit the mark and the feedback without error. When I returned to the assignment, the edited feedback was not replicated there. That's not good.

          Was there some specific circumstances that led to your error? We might need more information to reproduce this.

          After talking with Michael about this issue, I've divided it up into two separate issues. See MDL-35417 for the error message that I was getting.

          I think this is related to the same issue as MDL-35398. The concept of "Quick Feedback" is not being displayed in User Reports or the Gradebook. It only will show there if a Teacher uses the TinyMCE editor to leave "Slow Feedback".

          Thanks for the comments Jeremy,

          I didn't have quick feedback enabled when I discovered this issue. I was on the edit screen (grade/edit/tree/grade.php) So I was using TinyMCE to leave "Slow Feedback".

          Hi Adrian, yes I think it's important to note that feedback will be displayed in the grade book if a teacher uses the TinyMCE editor. If the teacher uses the so-called "Quick Feedback" text boxes to leave it, then that feedback will not be shown in the gradebook. It's "slow feedback" because to it would take 200 postbacks to grade students this way.

          What's interesting is that while quick feedback doesn't not show in User Reports/Gradebook, it does persist to the database. Students have to drill down into each assignment in their User Report to see the "quick feedback". As a high school teacher, this is problematic since we often want to print off a User Report for each student, and parents want to see something in the feedback column when a student fails an assignment.

          Doh,

          somehow this issue was closed incorrectly when processing all the integrated issues this week. (sort of most voted and current in integration filters mix). Apologies for the confusion, reseting to previous status!

          Ciao, Eloy

          This just needs to be designed properly - currently the assignment only pushes feedback to the gradebook - it does not display the feedback that has been edited in the gradebook within the assignment.

          I see the roadmap shows that with 2.3.8 the 2.3 branch goes on "security fixes only" July 8, 2013. Any chance this bug gets some love before then?

          We just upgraded from 2.2.4 to 2.5.2 and are experiencing this! I hope there's a solution somewhere.

          This could still be a bug in 2.6.2+. I'm investigating an instance that is very similar to this now.

          I think what I found was an anomaly. Sorry for the false alarm.
