Assignment dependencies improvements
Reported by Casper:Submitted by Elmer van Chastelet on 18 December 2019 at 13:52
Say I have an assignment B that depends on assignment A:
- If I haven’t started assignment A yet, and I try to start working on B, I occasionally get a cryptic error message: “This assignment was available until”. I was able to get this error message twice, but am now unable to reproduce. In both cases it occurred when I would try to start working on assignment B before I had started assignment A. But now I’m only able to get the proper error message “You cannot make this assignment since you have not passed the following assignment(s): […]” Could you investigate?
- Would it be possible to allow students to see the assignment text for B, but disallow that they can start working on it before the assignment it depends on (A) has a passing grade?
- Would it be possible to visualize the dependencies in the assignment overview somehow?
