Instructors have the ability to restrict access to activities to set groups. The settings for all activities have both a Common Module Settings area and a Restrict Access area. Each handles the restriction of a resource in a different way.
Changing group settings through Common Module Settings
The following are the settings available in the Common Module Settings area for activities in GauchoSpace.
- Visible: If the assignment is hidden, students will not see the assignment. This is the same as using the "Hide/Show" eye icon on your course page.
- Group mode: Select separate groups if you want to set as a restricted group assignment, this way groups members can only see the work of their group, or select visible groups, which allows non-group members to see work of other students. Using the Group Mode will only set how students submit and view assignments by their groups. If group mode has been set students who are not in a group will still be able to submit.
- Grouping: If you have groupings, you can select a grouping here to assign the activity to a specific grouping, which is a group of groups.
Change Group Settings through Restrict Access
Restrict access can allow an instructor to make an activity available based on a conditions. Conditions can be a date, a grade, or group or grouping membership.
You can also combine restrictions and set whether the student must or must not meet the condition. This method of restricting access allows you to hide activities from users who don't meet the set condition by clicking the eye icon for your restriction.
