I’ve been using iNaturalist for a while but am new to using it as an educator. I have set up a traditional project for an undergraduate-level botany course that my students will be using for one of their assignments. I will be grading students on the quality of their observations and correct identification to species. I’m restricting access to the project (invite only) to students in the course, but I’m now realizing that other (non-project) users will be able to see my student’s observations and (potentially) provide identifications for them. Is it possible to keep their observations hidden to non-project iNaturalist users until the assignment is due, and then I can check all their ID’s and “publish” them for all users to see?
Any insight or solutions to this problem would be much appreciated!
