Problem with Mahara Assignment and Journals

We are using Moodle 2.0 with Mahara 1.4 and the Mahara assignment for a Spreadsheet course. Students create a Mahara page and upload it each week for marking.

As part of the Mahara page they use the journal to write about what they have done and post the entries on their page

The problem arises that when I grade their work and want them to make corrections to the journal entry , it tells me that it is "Submitted for Assessment" and students have no editing rights (See link)

This is causing huge issues with students who are only 11 and are very keen. Dont want to lose the momentum. Does anyone have any ideas?

Thanks in advance Gideon

Sorry, meant to say that the "Submitted for assessment" still appears on the journal even after I have marked it and "released" their page.

I had this issue with one of our TDM implementations where we have TotaraLMS + Mahara and the assignment module.

I made a change to the plugin code so that when a grade + feedback are given, the page is released in Mahara. 

Right now and on my tablet, I cannot remember off by heart the change, but I will look into it. It isn't a flexible hack, but it was an only option with limited funding at the time... :P

Thomas, the page itself *does* get released on grading, thanks to a recent change by Luke Tucker.  Previously it was only released when the outcomes plugin was installed in Mahara, but now it should always be released.

The bug that still needs to be fixed (in Mahara, not the plugin) is that the artefacts that were inside the submitted page are still locked even after the page is released.  That patch on reviews is almost right, it just needs to be slightly tweaked & tested, someone will get to it soon.

Hi there, I have just been testing this using Mahara 1.6.2 and Moodle 2.2 and the page does not get released back to the students. What version does this work and has the issue with the arefacts been resolved? Thanks, Heidi

Hello Heidi,

The issue with the releasing was resolved a year ago (see the commits at https://gitorious.org/mahara-contrib/mod-assignment-type-mahara ). As I don't know what code you are using, I can't say. The plugin it self is unmaintained and thus was not checked if it required updates for Moodle 2.2+.

Cheers

Kristina

Thanks Kristina, I passed this information onto our developers and asked them to make sure we have the latest version of the plugin. They updated this and it resolved the issue. Have a lovely xmas break :)
