Updating notes when a prototype has changed


(Keith Lancaster) #1

In grading a large number of projects, I end up adding in key attributes as I go to prototypes for sections of the rubric. If I already have graded some projects, is there a way for the notes that link to a prototype to be updated with the new attribute? Hope this is clear enough…

Sure.

If a note already has a value for $KeyAttributes, that value overrides inheritance. If you want to use the inherited value, you need to remove the local assignment. Lots of ways to do that.

  • Quickstamp has a button to do this
  • The action $KeyAttributes=; will do this.
  • A stamp with the action above is probably the most convenient solution to your immediate problem.
