Problems with giving feedback in Grade Centre.

Problems with giving feedback in Grade Centre.

It should not be possible to give feedback for assignments without giving a grade. When you want to save the Grade Attempt page with Save & Next (or Submit), there should be a warning that no grade is given, because a grade is required. However, at the moment it is possible to save without a grade. If saving has occurred without a grade being entered the feedback is not visible for students and the assignment still has the status of Needs Marking.

Extra for group assignments:

In case of group assignments, the feedback is not being saved at all if you don’t give a grade! Although the message “successfully edited this attempt” appears.

Blackboard is working on a solution. It is not yet known when this will be realised.
