Prevent submiting after get grade or automatic archive old submission (version history)



    • Type: New Feature
    • Status: Open
    • Priority: Minor
    • Resolution: Unresolved
    • Affects Version/s: 3.6.2
    • Fix Version/s: None
    • Component/s: Assignment

      Current possible behavior:

      From what I know:

      • student can modify submission even he/she get grade from them
        • teacher can prevent additional submission manually (block for each user)
        • teacher can prevent additional submission by setting cut-off date (cut-off date not always is grade date)
        • if student send additional submission after grade, teacher can see Submitted for grading Graded - follow up submission received in status but there are no old submission version archived (teacher sometimes can't see if there is another submission)
      • student can store draft version of submission and send it to teacher when it will be ready
        • after sending final submission, additional changes are automatically blocked
          • teacher can manually send back submission for correction
          • teacher can manually allow to another attempt
          • teacher can set automatic attempt reopen until pass

      Suggested feature:

      student can modify submission until he/she get grade or cut-off date and teacher can manually allow for change or open another attempt.


      This will be helpful feature especially for teachers that use Moodle on stationary classes and other that need to archive student submissions and make sure that there are no other submissions after grade replacing old submission.


      Sample example:

      1. Student sent submission
        • after some time student want to change something in his/her submission
          • student can do this until get grade or cut-off date
          • student does not have to ask the teacher to change
      2. Student get grade for his/her submission
        • student can't change her/his submission
        • teacher can allow for change manually (send back submission or allow for additional attempt)


      What is wrong with current assignment options?

      • student can replace old submission (there is no automatic version history in the case of additional submission after get grade)
      • after change submission after grading, student still have old grade even if e.g. submission is completely worse than previous
      • teacher can block additional submission by allowing for draft and final version or blocking manually for every user
        • there are no automatic block sending submission after get grade or version history mechanizm in the case of sending another submission after grading (there is only information for teacher but previous submission files are not available)
