[OPEN] Sending activityProgress=Initialized&gradingProgress=NotReady with a Score call creates a submission object

Canvas

Engineers are currently investigating the issue.

Description

Sending activityProgress=Initialized&gradingProgress=NotReady with a Score call creates a submission object. The early creation of a submission object submission object already can cause confusion for users because the submission/needs grading icon shows in the gradebook and the assignment comes off student to-do list , even though the student hasn't submitted anything yet.

Expected Behavior

Submission object should only be created after activityProgress=Submitted/Completed&gradingProgress=Pending/Pending manual

Workaround

Waiting to send the score call until the student has actually submitted the assignment

Steps to Reproduce

  • Prerequisite: Have an assignment linked to a LTI 1.3 external tool with AGS enabled

  1. POST a Score to an Assignment's Line Item with activityProgress=Initialized&gradingProgress=NotReady

    1. ex: https://davidporter.instructure.com/api/lti/courses/247/line_items/14/scores?userId=ae74c7ee-5453-45...

  2. Check for the student's submission object, and see that it says "workflow_state": "submitted"
