Pending Items

What on earth is a Pending Item?

Sometimes, have students said they have submitted an assignment created using the Assessment tool but when you go to check it out, it's not there?  Do you know about the Pending area in ANGEL?  Pending is the Purgatory of ANGEL where the assignment is not submitted, but not available to students either.  This is when you will have to access the Pending items and make a few decisions.

It is definitely important for you to check this area regularly.  Remember:  PENDING!!!
  • First, go to the item and select Submissions
  • The submissions menu will open up a window like this:
  • Usually, you choose "View, Grade or Delete Submissions" when you want to grade student submissions, but in this case, choose the third item on the list "Pending Items"
  • If there is nothing on the list, you do not have to do anything more.  However, if there is student work in the Pending area, it will show up in a list.
  • If you would like to see what students have done so far, you can choose the View button.
  • If you want to delete the student submission so the student can try again, choose the Delete button.
  • If you want to just submit what the student has done so you can grade what is there, choose the Submit button.
