Group Assignment Submission Page May Be Confusing to Students
If the first student that views the group assignment submission page does not submit the assignment, subsequent group members see a page with previous submission information with a "review submission history" page suggesting that there is an ungraded attempt already submitted.

Content Editor/ Discussions

HTML Code with URLs is Causing Performance Problems

When grading an assignment attempt with inline grading, entering a letter grade returns an Invalid Value error.
