More Spiking CPU Over Assignments

More on concerns with editAssignmentSubmission.dowebct on Blackboard Vista nodes.

Found an error in the exceptions logs tied to one of the transactions:

Error occurred maintaining selective release status-Learning Object Id

It gets better…. The assignment in question? Not using selective release. Yeah. There is an error for an assessment. Hopefully it is just the assignments logic which causes hell on the nodes (database server seems unaffected). Well, the students are also affected as this seems to be the last thing they do in the session.

That selective release displays errors in the logic is quite awesome. I didn’t know the UI did this. However, to see it, I had to expand the right organizer page. Better usability would be to highlight all the errors to the designer. Heck, if there are errors, then it ought to be disabled. If the logic is known not to work, then why allow it to be active? You know… It might spin out of control. *headdesk*
