The Gradebook is available to all students and will list all grades that have been recorded. The entire Gradebook as well as individual grade columns can be hidden from students' view. Each assessment activity will have a column in the Gradebook. These columns as well as the Course total column can be hidden and released at the discretion of the instructor.
The Course total grade may become a source of confusion for students. Although the automatic calculation may be accurate, it may not indicate the correct grade position of the student in relation to the course assessment strategy. By default, Moodle calculates the course total grade as a percentage by aggregating each posted grade. The course total value displayed depends on the aggregation method.Therefore, as grades are posted, the course total will change. Refer to the Assigning Weights to Grade Items documentation page for more information on aggregation methods.
Maximum mark in standard activities is set as 200. By default, grades are set to display two decimal places. This applies to the assessment activity and to its associated column in the grade book. You can adjust this in either or both locations. Note, however, that rounding grades for display does not impact the Course total calculation.
To view the Gradebook, click Grades in the navigation block to open the Gradebook. The Gradebook will display the Grader report on the View tab.
The Grader report, if not already selected, appears by default when you access your Gradebook. It displays all course grades in spreadsheet format. A horizontal scrollbar is displayed at the top and the bottom of the spreadsheet whenever the grade columns do not fit within the page. This navigational functionality allows for smooth and stable horizontal scrolling through grades while student names remain static. From here, grades can be analyzed or updated. However, whenever possible, updates to grades should be made using the related grade item (assignment, journal, forum, etc.) or through an offline grading worksheet rather than directly in the Gradebook.
The average grade of each assessment item is displayed along the bottom of the report. Grades in each column can be sorted. Each assessment item in the Gradebook can be accessed by clicking on its title.
Entire grade columns can be hidden and released manually by the instructor or triggered by a release date. Individual student grades can also be hidden and released in the same manner.
The other two types of grade report view are Outcomes report and User report.
The User report link allows you to see Gradebook of all or just one student selected from the drop-down list. It is also offering information about calculated weight of all activities as well as the contribution each activity has to the course total.
