Assignments - Improvements to Assignments List view
When accessing Assignments, the list view now displays updated information. Previously instructors would see information on the assignment name, Total Submissions, Unread Submissions, Flagged Submissions, and Due Date. Now instructors see information on the assignment name, the number of learners who have completed the assignment, the number of learners who have been evaluated, the number of learners who have had feedback published, and the Due Date. This allows instructors to quickly determine what assignments they need to evaluate, how far along they are with their evaluations, and if they have published the evaluations.
Learners also have an updated view of the assignments list, and are now able to see the assignment name, the Completion Status (Not Submitted, Submitted, Completed), their Score, The Evaluation Status (Not yet evaluated, Feedback: unread, Feedback: read), and the Due Date. This change to the list view allows learners to easily locate unfinished assignments, as well as access their scores and view instructor feedback on their work.
Administrators determine if the new Assignments list experience is available by setting the d2l.Tools.Dropbox.UseAssignmentListOptIn configuration variable. If this variable is set to On (Opt in), Instructors and students determine which version of the Assignments list to use in their courses (this is the default value). If this variable is set to On all users see the new Assignment list page, if it is set to Off all users see the old Assignments list page. We will have it set to Opt in.
