when assigning a word document to students Im unable to view the document as a instructor unless I collect the work first.

If i try and view the work before ive collected it prompts for a username and password when attempting to open the word file.

The relevant permissions for instructors are not being asigned until I collect the work.

This means staff will have to collect the work to view their progress and then reactivate to allow the student to carry on working on the document.

I fear that this is too many steps for certain staff to remember.

This is by design. The instructor isn't given any permissions until it is submitted.

I am thinking about making these permissions configurable.

Obviously a learner can download the file to work on it so a view of the file isn't  necessarily a good indication of how they are doing.
