Moodle is an online tool that allows educators to interact with students outside the classroom and manage a course from anywhere. In Moodle Essential Training for Teachers, Chris Mattia shows how this program works for teachers on three levels: disseminating information, creating a forum where ideas are exchanged, and assessing the progress of students. Chris shows how to build course materials with Moodle's HTML editor, post assignments, and save time by using Moodle's grade book to evaluate tests automatically and organize scores. Exercise files accompany the course.
The Grade Book module inside of Moodle is a great way to keep yourself organized, keep your grades up to date and your students informed of their progress inside of your course. The Grade Book can be accessed from the Administration block, in the left hand side of your course. Simply click on the link for Grades and you are taken into the Grade Book. In a previous movie, we set up our Grade Book by going up to the Choose Action menu and creating a variety of categories that we then used throughout the course, as we have been creating different assignments and we have been associating those assignments with the various grade categories that we created. What you see now is the result of all that work.
We have all of our students listed out, the different categories that we are going to be providing grades for our students, assignments with individual lines for each grade for each student. There are even tools in here, for us to Show the column averages and it would show an average score for each individual assignment that's been graded inside of your Moodle course. If you would like to show the range of grades for each assignment, simply click on Show ranges and it will give you the point values that are available for each individual assignment. However, to really get in and begin using the Grade Book, we really need to have some grades, for all of these different assignments, so we can see how to really work with the Grade Book.
So the next thing we want to do is to logout of our main user account and log in as each of the different student accounts and input a bunch of data, so we have example assignments. We are going to begin with the student Al Uminium. So let's go ahead and return back to our course by clicking on the BIOL432 link. Then in the upper right hand corner, simply click the Logout button next to your name. In the next movie, we'll go ahead and show you what a student sees as they log in to your course and complete all the various assignments for your course.
