Restricting access to final assignment until feedback has been completed

A common question we get asked is:

How do I prevent students from submitting their final assignment until the course feedback (Student Evaluation of Moodle) has been completed?

Assuming that you are using the Feedback activity in Moodle to carry out your Student Evaluation of Module/SEM (see our video tutorial on setting up SEM in Moodle), and using a Moodle assessment tool like the Moodle Assignment, then you can make use of the Activity Completion and Restrict Access settings to do this:

  1. First, go to Administration > Course administration > Edit Settings.

 Scroll down to Completion tracking, and enable it. Save changes.

  1. Then, when you set up the Feedback activity, set Activity Completion criteria, e.g. Show activity as complete when conditions are met: View as completed if the feedback is submitted.

  2. Then, when you’re setting up the assignment, on the Edit Settings screen, scroll down to Restrict access and expand it.Click on Add restriction, and then on Activity completion:

    Then, from the dropdown list next to Activity Completion, choose the name of the Feedback (here it is ‘test’), and leave it as must be marked complete. Save your changes.
