Is there a way teachers are able to receive an email or receive notification in some way once a student has completed and submitted an assessment activity? As administrators we are currently needing to log in as each individual student to verify if assessment activities have been submitted or not.
Select Site Administration - Plugins - Activity Module - Assignment settings. There will be an option called 'Notify graders about submissions'.
By default, this option is set to 'No' but 'If enabled, graders (usually teachers) receive a message whenever a student submits an assignment, early, on time and late. Message methods are configurable'.
These configurations can be found when you begin setting up your activities. For example, the assignment activity has three options in the 'Notifications' setting.
These 'Notifications' settings allow you to select 'Yes' or 'No' against the following:
- Notify graders about submissions
- Notify graders late submissions
- Default setting for "Notify students"
You can check your incoming email configuration settings by selecting Site Administration - Server - Email - Incoming mail configuration.
