instructors acting as students they will always see a "check answers"
button rather than a "submit answers" button. This indicates that any
work they do, such as submitting a test answer, will not be recorded.
This includes (at least most of the time) -- the sticky answer feature
that saves answers from one session to the next. During a single
session, answers entered by an instructor will stay sticky while you
are working on the same problem.
There was some discussion on this, but on balance it was felt best if
the instructor could see the student's work, but could not modify it
accidently (or on purpose). You can change the grade (a.k.a. status)
when you edit a set for an individual student ("user") from the
"instructor tools" page.
Students will see a submit answer button if their answers will count.
If it is past the due date the "submit answer" changes to "check
Its possible that the interface is misbehaving in certain circumstances
and I'd like to know how to reproduce it. You won't be able to check it
by acting as the student however -- you'll have to get their password
(or change it to one you know) and login as the student to see the same
effect. My first guess is that it is past the due date or there is
someother reason why WeBWorK is not recording their answers for credit.
Hope this helps.
