I have been setting up my GitHub classroom “properly” for the first time! Yay me! lol
On all my assignments I use repl.it integration. It works beautifully. I also have automated testing (pytest) when the students push/commit, that is working well too.
I want to set the visibility of my assignment repositories to “Private”, to prevent students from accessing their classmate’s repositories, and possibly cheating. However, I have to set the visibility of my assignment repositories to “Public” so the students can load the repositories into their repl.it account.
I created and tested my assignments with a “dummy” student account I created. When I attempted to click the “work in repl.it” button from the assignment, Replit refused to load the private assignment repository. Repl.it will only load private assignment repositories if the students pays for their “Hacker Plan”, which is $5/month or $50/year.
Is there any “work-around” that would allow my students to access private assignment repo’s via Repl.it?
