D2L Bugs – December/January

Bug #1 – Grading Dropbox Submissions

The ideal way to grade papers submitted to the Dropbox is to click the “Evaluate” button across from the first student in the list of submissions:

On the next screen, you can view the student’s paper, write feedback comments, and enter a points grade. Once you have done this, click Publish in the bottom-right corner of the screen, then Next Student to advance to the next student to grade.

The Bug: It has been found that using the Next Student button no longer advances through the submissions in alphabetical order. Furthermore, it will sometimes hit the end of the list of submissions, without having brought up every student! You may continue grading Dropbox papers in this manner, but be sure to go back and check that each submission has been graded and marked as “Published.” The risk here is that some students may be skipped when grading.
