When adding a new Assignment to a course, I noticed that some of the default settings are the same as the last Assignment I created. Is this normal behavior? Is there a way to change this?
Hello Mark Wiest - That IS indeed the default behavior, as outlined in the Instructor Guide in the third paragraph here: How do I add or edit details in an assignment?
I remember when this was added (I'd have to do a search through the Production Release Notes to figure out when--but it has been a while), and as I recall the reason for this was to assist instructors who create several assignments at once to lessen having to change every option available. So, much as I hate to use the well-worn phrase "that's not a bug, it's a feature" that pretty much sums it up.
