If I was to return 10 marks from a class of 30, then a month later return the other 20 marks, would the first batch of 10 marks be overwritten, or (wrongly) show a 2nd attempt?
The marks return system only returns a mark as a second attempt where there is already a different return with a mark for that student.
The recommended way to do this is:
- Create a single marks return in the system
- Add the 10 marks and send them to student records
- Later on, edit the same marks return and add the other 20 marks and send them to student records
When a return is edited and sent to student records, only the marks which have changed are transmitted so the original 10 marks will be unaffected.
