      Description

      An instructor can restrict the time period over which ratings are allowed - this is useful to provide time-limited, focussed discussions, where the instructor is grading student contributions to the discussion.
      However, there is no way for a student to actually see what this time period is!!! And students may continue to post to this discussion after the rating period has expired, unaware that their work will not be graded (ouch!)

      I would like to be able to either restrict students from posting outside this period, or have the UI provide them with feedback that the forum is no longer being rated and so any postings they make will not be graded.

      It would also be nice if the discussion time period showed up on the "Upcoming Events" and maybe the closing date could show up on the Calendar? This would allow instructors to put "due dates" on discussion contributions more easily and transparently for the students, and it would highlight current and upcoming discussions as important activities.

            Assigning to me temporarily because Vy-Shane no longer works for Moodle HQ.

            We have detected that this issue has been inactive for over two years and also did not collect many votes. It is possible that it has been already implemented in a more recent version of Moodle, or it is not highly demanded. There are unlimited number of ways Moodle functinality can be expanded and improved but we would like to concentrate on the features that will benefit majority of users, and which can not be implemented as plugins. If you have a suggestion for improving Moodle core, and there is no open issue for it in the tracker, please start a new forum discussion to see how many other users agree with you, and then create a new issue providing as many details as possible.

            I am suggesting in MDL-48344 that information about rating restrictions be visible similar to how conditions from conditional activities are displayed. Peace - Anthony
