Provide an access rule and secure layout for the assignment activity
- Project size: medium
- Audience: universities, colleges
- Target users: teachers, students
Goals / Background
Many teachers choose the assignment activity over a quiz with an qtype_essay question because the assignment activity offers substantially more elaborate assessment (rubrics) and feedback (in-line mark-up) possibilities. In some scenarios it would be helpful to let teachers assess students with the assignment activity in a more controlled exam environment. Especially in applied linguistics (e.g. translation exam) and social sciences (e.g. elaborate reflection) the possibility to activate an access rule and secure layout for exam-like assignments would facilitate the use for summative assessments.
- As a teacher, I should be able to set an access rule for assignment activities to be opened only within Safe Exam Browser.
- As a teacher, I should be able to set whether assignment activities should be opened in standard or secure layout.
- As a student, I should only be able to view the assignment in the secure layout limiting access to messaging and other courses.
- As a student, I should only be able to view the assignment description when accessing through Safe Exam Browser.
- As a student, I should only be able to submit an assignment when accessing through Safe Exam Browser.
