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.
Let's go into the Final Exam quiz and see what the Grade Book has entered in for us. To do this, simply click on the Final Exam link at the top of the Final Exam column. We are taking it to the Results tab of this quiz. Here we can see a summary of all of the students listed out. The date that they started the quiz on, the date that they completed the quiz on. The time that it took them to complete the quiz. The grade that Moodle automatically assign to them for each question. We then get a breakdown of question by question of how many points the student's earned. If we want to see a detailed view for each student we can simply click on the Grade value for that student for the overall grade.
Here we are taking into a review of the student's exam. By default, only the first question appears. So we'll click on the link for Show all questions on one page. Now we're able to scroll down through this quiz, get specific information about how the student answered each question. We can see what answer they selected, whether it was right or wrong and detailed information about each attempt. Let's go ahead and scroll down and have a look at some of the different questions.
Here we can see that this student did not enter the correct answer for either of the three matching, but they did get the question about the flatworm right. As you scroll down, you can gain a lot of insight as to what areas that each student may need additional help for. If you need to be able to print this page, you can print the page out. And you can have a hard copy of the completed exam by the student. Your institution may want to have a hard copy of the exam, but otherwise you have the exam here available to you at any time. Let's go ahead and scroll back up to the top and go back to the Overview link, to return back to the view for all of the students.
Now we do know that each student has completed question 8, which is an essay question, but it hasn't been graded yet. To read the essay submission, simply click on the link inside of question 8 for each student. This will pop open a new window that we can open up a bit bigger to see all the information. We see the listing of the student. The quiz that this essay question was associated with, the date that it was completed on. We see a copy of the question then as we scroll down, we can see the text that the student entered in.
We can then make comments or override the grade. Here we'll click this link and we can provide feedback back to the student about their essay. We can also assign a grade. In this case, we'll just assign 1 and click Save then close this window. And now when we scroll down to the bottom we can see that the grade has been manually updated with the updated grade has been manually updated with the updated grade in it. Let's go ahead and close this window and then simply hit the Refresh button on our browser. And we can see that the grade that we just entered in has now been updated for the student. You can now go in and assign grades to all the rest of the students for this assignment.
Next we'll go in and explore some of the other data that's available inside of the Quiz Grade, in the meantime, go in and assign grades to the rest of the students for their essay question.
