I have a group assignment that is due soon. We are only allowed one submission per group (and further submissions, even before the deadline, will be penalized). This group assignment is worth a significant portion of our grade (about 50%).
This group assignment requires digitally submitting multiple separate documents and have very specific requirements (filename must be
groupAssignment1.pdf, it must be submitted between 18:00 and 18:30 on a specific day, and so on). All group members receive the same grade.
How can I/we submit the group assignment without putting the blame on the submitter for forgetting to submit a required document or submitting it "incorrectly" (as defined by the strict requirements)?
At best, the blame should be put on the whole group if the submission was done "incorrectly".
I have suggested this:
To meet up just before the deadline with everyone watching the submission process (one person prepares documents to submit, everyone else watches and catches errors). The people who did not/can not make it there have no right to complain if it was done incorrectly (I don't feel comfortable with this because some people have legitimate reasons for not being able to make it).
