Grading and Tracking Student Activity in Moodle - Faculty
Moodle's Gradebook feature collects and calculates grades from every graded activity in your course. With the right setup that matches your planned grading structure, the gradebook feature eliminates the need to keep a separate grade sheet outside of Moodle.
Note: Moodle is not CCA's academic system of record, so all official grade submissions should be made through Workday. See Submit Grades Step by Step Guide for details.
Using Moodle's Gradebook
Before adding activities and resources to your Moodle course, it is highly recommended that you set up your gradebook. To set it up, you should first prepare your course grade breakdown and select a matching grade aggregation method.
Once you created a clear course grade breakdown and selected the grade aggregation method, you can go to your Moodle course to set up the gradebook.
Please visit this page if your course grade breakdown designates a Moodle gradebook that uses Weighted Mean of Grades as the grade aggregation method.
Please visit this page if your course grade breakdown designates a Moodle gradebook that uses Natural as the grade aggregation method.
Learn how to view, enter, and edit grades for your course. Moodle lets you assign grades from a single consolidated view, or you can enter grades for individual students or for specific assignments.
Once you have set up your gradebook properly, you can unhide the gradebook so that your students can track their progress in your course. Students can access the grader report from their Moodle profile or from within their course. To learn more about what they are able to see, check out Viewing Grades in Moodle - Students.
Activity completion is one of the best ways to track engagement within your Moodle course. It is enabled by default. You will see checkboxes to the right of every Resource and Activity you create.
You may wish to export the gradebook in order to keep a record or to perform additional calculations.
If you want to use the gradebook to provide feedback and track participation for students, but are teaching a pass/incomplete course, there is a special way you can set up your gradebook to do this.
