ECAssignmentBox is a project which allows the creation, submission and grading of online assignments.

ECAssignmentBox is a Plone product which allows the creation, submission and grading of online assignments (exercises, homework), both for traditional on-site courses and for e-learning.

The basic idea is that teachers create assignment boxes into which students submit their answers or solutions. The student submissions are then put through a number of workflow states, typically submitted, accepted and graded. The teacher can view the submissions, assign a grade and add feedback.

The assignment workflow is designed to accommodate different processes.

Assignment boxes can be grouped together using ECFolders, which provide specialized view templates and statistics for the assignments they contain. ECFolders can be nested. You can use them to represent, for example, courses and weekly worksheets.

Works with:

Plone 2.5
Plone 2.1.4
Plone 2.1.3

What's New in This Release:

Added field "Maximum number of attempts" to ECAssignmentBox to restrict the number of resubmissions.
Implemented issue #118: For box owners and managers it is now possible make submissions even if the assignment box is in state public draft or private, and to make any number of resubmissions.
In the "assignments" view:
If there is more than one assignment box inside an ECFolder one will see a table for each box. Clicking the check box in one of the tables' header will check or uncheck all entries inside this table only and not all entries in all tables.
Now it is possible to toggle the view of superseded assignments.
Added clickable workflow states (assignments can now be filtered by workflow state).
Added delete button and polished the "change state" controls.
As addition to the "assignments" view, owners and managers can use the "assignments (full)" tab to see the full text of all assignments on one page.
If the parent of an assignment box is an ECFolder and this ECFolder contains directions, the directions will be shown inside a collapsible box on top of the assignment box.
Fixed issue #119: Uploads can now be any size.
Fixed issue #120: Students do not see shared assignments of other users in the "statistics" view.
Performance improvements: We are now using portal_catalog where possible.
