Adding Grade Items in Moodle Gradebook (Faculty/Staff)
Posted by Eric Strom on 10 December 2009 11:22 AM

This article introduces how to add grade items directly in the Moodle gradebook. Note: The PREFERRED method for entering grades (even for assignments--like oral presentations or in-class quizzes) is to create a Moodle Assignment. The advantages of using this method instead of the one described below are:

  • easy duplication with the duplicate tool
  • items are viewable in the course by students (but can be hidden if desired)
  • allows for additional descriptions or instructions for the activity
  • option to change the activity settings to have an online component later if desired.
