This guide covers how to set a resource to auto-submit to the ATLAS workspace for assessment when a student begins their work.


What is this?

PebblePad 'Auto share' modal

ATLAS has the option to allow students to submit their PebblePad asset (template or workbook) at the point they create the file -  at the beginning of their work, rather than at the end.

This is helpful on occasions where instructors may want to provide formative feedback or commentary on a student's work as they complete it, rather than waiting until after a formal deadline to do so.

Alternatively, it may be that both the student and their instructor need to complete different sections of the same template or workbook, and this would give the instructor access to the student's work via ATLAS.

In the set-up, the instructor can decide which template will auto-submit, and to which assignment it will be sent. Activating auto-submit provides a simple prompt for the student to share their work as they begin.
