Grades - Marking workflow

Marking workflow allows for results of assignment type activities to sit in a number of different states prior to being released to students. This is only available for assignment type activities not quiz.

On a basic level this allows results to be hidden from students until you're ready, but also allows for assessors to keep track of the state of individual student's assignment through a mark->review->release workflow.

Enable marking workflow

Edit the settings for the assignment activity:

Administration, Assignment administration, Edit settings

Under the Grade area of the Edit settings page, set Use marking workflow to Yes

When grading an individual assessment there is now an option to set marking workflow state, any state other than "Released" will hide the current grade from the student.
