Buzz: Product Feedback

Auto-submitted Incomplete Assignments

Anna Westaby

I have my courses in Buzz set to auto-grade late assignments as 0. I just noticed an assignment, several days after the due date, showing submission icons in the gradebook for all the students who had yet to submit it. There was no actual submission in any of those dropboxes.

When I check the activity history, it says "completed, needs grading" but the submissions do not show in my "needs grading" list. To be sure that the assignment remains in students' to-do lists, I manually un-completed the assignments, but they still show as the system administrator marking them "complete, needs grading" and the submission icon still shows in the gradebook.

This particular assignment does not count towards students' final grade - perhaps that has something to do with it? It occurred in both sections of this class, but I have not had it happen in any other assignments anywhere.

This is not an emergency, obviously, but just curious what is going on?

Hey Anna, I've seen this type of behavior when the activity is changed from being non-gradable to gradable. For example, the completion trigger for the activity used to be that the student just had to select a "mark as complete" box or spent a certain amount of time on the activity to have it marked as completed. Then when a teacher changes the activity to be gradable, the previous "completion" flags the activity as needs grading but does not have anything to be graded.

However, I am not sure if this is the issue you are experiencing. I would recommend reaching out to you authorized support contact to have a support ticket created so that we can exchange course details and fully investigate the issue.

Thank you!

Hi Brad, Unfortunately that is not the issue I am having - my assignment was always gradable, just not included in the final grade. I am working with my support contact to get a ticket set up. Thanks!
