      Description

      If an assignment is set to allow a certain number of resubmissions, the allowed resubmission option will be automatically checked in the new grader when the instructor starts to grade the first submission of a student and the number of allowed resubmission should be the same as it is set when the instructor creates the assignment. However, in 20x and 21x, the new grader will always set the allowed number of resubmission to be 1 regardless of how many resubmissions have been set by the instructor when creating the assignment. 

      For example, if an instructor creates an assignment and allows 5 resubmissions, when a student submits the assignment for the first time and the instructor opens the student submission with the new grader, the allowed number of resubmissions shown in the new grader should be 5. But in the new grader, the allowed number of resubmissions will always be 1. 

      This can be troublesome if the instructor is not aware of the default setting of the allowed number of resubmissions in the new grader and clicks "save and release to students" without setting the allowed number of resubmission to the right number. Then the student will have 1 opportunity to resubmit, which is inconsistent with the instructor's initial attempt to allow the student to resubmit 5 times.

      The old grader in 19x behaves correctly with regard to this issue (please see the screenshot).
