Is it possible to mute an entire assignment group with just one click? Right now, it seems like if an instructor wants to mute 4 - 5 assignments within a single group for grading, they have to mute them all individually.
For instance, if an instructor has an assignment group devoted to a final essay project, they might have 4 - 6 scaffolded assignments involved in the final grade -- e.g. 1) Topic selection, 2) outline, 3) rough draft, 4) annotated bibliography, 5) peer review, and 6) final copy. It seems a little painstaking for them to go into each individual assignment to mute them while inputting grades.
Of course, I know that the purpose of scaffolding grades involves timely feedback, so ideally the instructor would be providing grades for each new step in this process. I agree that it's not the best option to input all their grades at one time. Just the same, I thought I'd ask if anything related to this type of functionality exists.
