In some cases, assignments are iterative – students are asked to provide work for formative feedback rather than summative feedback and a mark, or students are providing drafts. In these cases, it may be appropriate to disable
the Submit button.
Change Require students to click the submit button to No.
Note: The benefit of setting Require students to click the submit button to Yes
is that once students click submit, they will be prevented from making changes to their submission during marking. Setting Require students to click the submit
button to No should be used with the knowledge that students will be able to continue editing their submission.
Once a student enters their assignment (file upload or online text) the submission status will be displayed as Submitted for grading, however, they will continue to be able to edit their submission. At no point will they
need to finalise their submission.
