When we're teaching a Moodle course, it's essential that we check everything from the students point of view, to make sure our activities work properly for them. It is possible as a teacher, in the settings block, to click the switch role to students option. However, this isn't fool proof and it doesn't always give an accurate view. So it's even better if our administrator could give us a student log in to test with. So in this video, we're going to check how an assignment works for a student using our student log in of George Adams.
And this would also help us understand any potential problems our student might have when submitting assignments. So we're in the course now as student George Adams, and you can see that we don't have any editing buttons here because we can only read and do the activities. So if we scroll down into the assessment and evaluation section, we're going to click and submit the final assessment, Meet Me in St. Louis, as a student. And we can see that nothing has yet been submitted because George hasn't started.
He has the instructions at the top, and he has a due date. So, he now needs to click the button, add submission, and because of this one we set a text assignment, then George simply needs to type in the work that he's going to submit, which I already have prepared. And so I am going to paste it in now, and then all the student needs to do is click the save changes button. You might as a teacher, also require them to click a submit button or to agree to a statement saying that the work is their own.
In this particular instance, we haven't done that. So George will simply click the button Save the Changes, and he is taken back to his assignment submission screen, where it now shows that he has submitted it for grading, but not yet received a grade because now it is up to us, the teacher, to go and grade it. So in this video, we've used a student account to explore how students access and send in work for us to grade. It's useful to do this, because it helps us ensure we've set up the assignment correctly. And it also gives us an insight into how the assignment works for students, in case we get any queries from them.
