As the manager of a flow you can allow the participants to hand in as groups. This is chosen in the pane "Basic" > "Details" > "Group type":
You will find three options under "Group type":
If No group type is chosen all participants will hand in separately.
If the group form Group paper is chosen the participants will have to form or take part in a group in order to be allowed to hand in. Each group member will have access to hand in and withdraw on behalf of the entire group, and only one paper can be handed in. This will be useful, when you have a group form with a collected submission on behalf of the entire group. This means the participants will receive collected feedback from Annotate and there will be only one plagiarism report.
Note: If the group form "Group paper" is removed after the flow has started all participant hand-ins will be deleted and the participants need to hand in again.
If the group form Individual papers is chosen all participants will have to form or take part in a group in order to be allowed to hand in. All group members will still have to hand in separately in this group form. This group form is useful when the participants can take part in a group, but where they have to hand in individual papers.
Note: It is possible for the participants to form a one-man group.
Define the groups as the manager of the flow
As the manager of the flow you can define the groups beforehand, when a group form has been chosen. The groups can be locked or open for change by the participants.
1. Choose "Manage groups" at the top of the participant list:
2. Click "add group" (1). Type the name for the group and choose whether the participants can change the groups afterwards (2). Save with "Create group" (3):
3. You can add the participants to a group in three ways:
- You can distribute the participants evenly (1)
- You can drag and drop single participants with the grey box (2)
- You can mark more than one participant (3) and click the blue icon in the upper right corner to move them all to a specific group (4)
Note: If you as a manager do not manage the groups, participants are allowed to form the groups themselves.
