When you set up an assignment dropbox, 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). Thus the student can review all submissions and feedback, and see any improvements in their submission.

Enable resubmission settings

  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
    attempts reopened

    Note: If Automatically until pass is selected, you will need to open the Grade section of this page and configure the Grade to pass setting 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.


Manually reopen a submission

  1. Grade the student using the individual marking form

  2. At the bottom of the right panel is the Attempt settings section. in this section, change Allow another attempt to Yes.
