Moodle provides students with a rich environment of information, resources, and activities to enhance what is being taught in the classroom. In Moodle Essential Training for Students, Chris Mattia walks step by step through a typical Moodle course and shows students how to be successful. Chris shows how to post materials to a custom database, participate in a live chat with other students, and even access and complete assignments online.
Perhaps the most popular feature of Moodle that students really love is the Grade Book. The Grade Book allows you to find exactly what your grade is at all times during the course. You can access the Grade Book from inside of your course by going over to the Administration block, which is normally found on the left-hand side, and clicking on the link for Grades. Now the Grade Book is only going to work if your instructor is using Moodle to keep track of grades and is keeping the information up to date. The Grade Book shows you every single item that's being graded as part of the course, the category that item is listed in, the grade that you have received, the percentage of points that you have gotten, and any additional feedback that your instructor has given you for that particular assignment.
You can also click on links inside of the Grade Book under the Grade item name to jump directly to an assignment that you handed in, to see any feedback, the files that you have submitted and so forth. I'm going to go ahead and click the Back button in my browser to return back to my Grade Book. Another nice little hidden gem of the Grade Book is right here, this dropdown menu that says Choose an action. Because we entered into the Grade Book from inside of our coral reef class, when we clicked on the Grade Book we got a listing for all the grades inside of this particular course. But if I click the dropdown menu for Choose an action and then select Overview report. I'm given a listing of all the different courses that I'm currently taking inside of Moodle, the name of the course and my current grade.
So if I'm taking multiple classes, I can instantly see how I'm doing it at any point or in the semester. I can then go into any particular class by simply clicking on the link for the class and it takes me to the Grade Book for that particular course. Another way to do this is clicking the dropdown menu for Choose an action and simply selecting User report. This is the report that we are currently looking at. The Grade Book provides a nice way for you to constantly keep up to date and know how you are doing in your class, so that you can know what areas you need to improve on.
Let's go ahead and return back to the course by clicking on the link for Biology432 in the upper left-hand corner.
