Ability to Mark Retry on Assignment

Follow
Kevin McBride

Currently on an assignment-type problem, I am unable to mark that a student is able to retry this assignment. The retry icon in the gradebook has become a good indicator for students and parents that they are able to retry an assignment, regardless of being a computer or paper-based assignment. 

 

I would like to have the ability to mark any assignment as retry in the gradebook.

Hello Kevin!

In general we do not allow a teacher to grant a retry to a student who has not initially submitted the item. This would defeat the purpose of a retry. If the student has submitted the item and you are unable to grant a retry, could you provide reproduction steps for me to verify the issue?

Hi Brian,

I respectfully disagree that this would defeat the purpose of a retry. If a student has a paper assignment, which still exists in a blended environment, a student could have the opportunity to retry or redo this assignment. By using the "allow retry" on these types of assignments, I can still indicate to my students and parents that they are eligible to retry this item.

My goal is more about communication than anything else.

Here is a video that may offer a better explanation.

 

Thanks.

Hey Kevin!

One may set the item's completion to when they receive any score so that when the teacher submits a grade to the student, they can issue a retry to the student without the student having initiated the first submission. Otherwise it is expected behavior that if the completion trigger is set to when a student submits we do not allow the teacher to grant a retry to the student even if they pass a score to the student. The purpose of the retry function is to provide the student another attempt at the item.

Hi Brian,

I believe this would provide me with the desired outcome. However, after changing the setting to marking as complete when the student receives any score, I am still unable to allow a retry.
