Self and Peer Assessment Tool > Known Issue


Self and Peer Assessment assigns empty submissions to peers for grading.


If students do not submit assignments during the submission phase, their empty assignments are still given to peers for grading. Some of the users will receive an empty entry for one of the users who did not submit that will be indicated by The user did not submit a response for this question. Points cannot be allocated. The user will automatically receive 0 points for this question. Go to the next question. The users who did not submit will receive valid entries to evaluate.

In addition, some students may receive papers/assignments that need to be evaluated while other students will not. Also, students that are no longer in the course, like students that have dropped the class, will be assigned a paper/assignment to review.


No known workaround exists.
