Allow students to resubmit an assignment

You are able to set an assignment up to either automatically give students the chance to resubmit until they receive a pass mark (as specified by you) or manually control when resubmissions are given.

The resubmission feature allows both staff and students to review the full submission history (a resubmission will not overwrite a previous submission). This gives the student the oppurtunity to review all submissions and feedback and see any improvements in their submission.

Steps to enable resubmissions

  1. Create a new assignment or edit your existing assignment

  2. Expand the Submission settings section

  3. Select either Manually or Automatically until pass from the Attempts reopened list

    Note: If Automatically until pass is selected, the Grade to pass setting in the gradebook will need to be configured so that FLO knows when to re-open the submission dropbox for the student. If you want students within a range of grades to be able to resubmit (eg 47-49) you should choose Manually, and use the settings in the individual marking form (see instructions below).

  4. Select the Maximum attempt allowed by students

    Note: this field is most important if using the 'Automatically until pass' option, as this can limit the number of times a student is able to resubmit. Configuring this field when 'Manually' is selected for the Attempts reopened field will limit the number of times staff can request a student resubmits.


Steps to manually reopen a submission

  1. Grade the student using the individual marking form

  2. Select Yes from the Allow another attempt list in the Attempt settings section

Any previous submission attempts will be listed at the bottom of the Individual marking form
