      I'm using a fresh installation of Moodle 3.1.5, then I create a new course  and a new assignment with

      • Students submit in groups = YES
      • Use marking workflow = YES
      • Use marking allocation = YES

      There is a course group.

      There is only a student enrolled in the course and does'nt matter if it's also enrolled in a group. No groupings are defined at course level.

      Loggin into moodle directly as the student, the assignment fails with the error page "You can't add comments"

      and this is the stack trace:
      Debug info:

        And the error page is missing the css information, so only text is printed (maybe because is a unexpected error)

      Disabling the "use marking allocation" feature, the assignment it's available again to students.

      I'm not sure that enabling these assignment options does make any sense, but a teacher can do that and then does not understand why the assignment is broken.


      The relevant code is in mod/assign/locallib.php in the function list_participants where an additional join is added to the sql query that get the list of students that can do submissions.
