In this course, author Chris Mattia helps educators create online courses that complement classroom-based instruction and foster student interaction using the free learning management system Moodle. The course details the basics of setting up a test environment, disseminating course information, creating forums, and assessing student progress. Tutorials on building course materials with Moodle's built-in HTML editor, preparing and posting various types of media, uploading assignments, and evaluating tests automatically are also included.
Now let's create the quiz that we created in our earlier exercise. We gave this quiz as our final exam. To access the Final Exam go ahead and click on the link for Final Exam directly in our gradebook. The grading page for the exam appears. At the top of the page we are able to set some Preferences for how we want to work with the page. The defaults are for all attempts to be shown, and it will also show us any grades regardless of whether or not they're needing attention or not. The next section allows us to control how many students that we want to see per page.
Since we only have a few students in our course a Page size of 30 will allow us to see all of our students at one time. If we scroll down and look at the report itself here we can see each of her students listed out. The Date and Time that they started and Completed the exam on, how long they took to complete the exam,, and then we can see a detailed review of each and every question on the exam, and the point values that the students were assigned for that question. We can even tell at a glance because of the color coding which questions the students got right, which ones they got only partial credit, and which ones they got completely wrong.
Furthermore, we can even see which questions the students Flagged to follow-up on. This way when we are looking at the exam, we can see which were the harder questions for each individual student. At the top of each column for each question, we see how many points that question was worth. At the bottom of the column, Moodle gives us an average score for that question and it tells us how many students answered the question. So out of the five students that answered this question, the average was 6 points. For the next question the average was 8 point.
Now for each individual question, if we want to look into a little more detail about how a particular student answered the question, we can click on the point value itself. Moodle will pop open a new window, and it will show us that student's response to that particular question. So when we scroll down, we can see that this student answered Eel for this question. If we want, we could go ahead and make a comment or override this mark to assign additional partial credit if it's warranted. In this case, it's not warranted.
So we will go ahead and close the window and accept the grade that was already posted. For question 6, which was our Essay Question we can see that each student has listed inside of that column, Requires grading. We can go ahead and click on that link, and then we are taken directly to that student's Essay Question. We can scroll down in the page and we can read the response to the Essay Question that the student typed in. We can then click inside of the green bar and we can then click on the link from Make comment or override mark.
Scroll down in this window. Now we are able to respond directly to the student with some comments: Nice job, but you may want to add a bit more detail. For this essay, I'm only going to give this student 80 points. I can then scroll down to the bottom and click the Save button and now I can see that my changes were saved. So I scroll down in the student's view and I can see the history of all of the different responses for this particular question for this student.
When we Close the window, we can come back into our browser and click the Reload current page button in our browser, and now we can see the point value that was assigned to that particular student. If we scroll down in the page, now we can start seeing a graph to show the distribution of grades for this exam. Let's quickly go ahead and add in the grades for the other students' essays. We will simply click the Requires grading, scroll down, click the link from Make comment, scroll down, assign a random grade, 90, hit Save, scroll down, close the window.
We will go ahead and do that for the other students. Now when we refresh the whole page, now that we have a grade for each student, when we scroll down, we are able to see the distribution of grades for this particular assignment. We scroll back up to the top. We can see that we can download this whole table in a variety of different formats and if we need to go in and look at any particular students' overall exam, we can click on Review attempts for that student and it will bring up a complete copy of that student's overall exam, showing us the quick navigation and every question that they answered with the correct responses for it, and we are able to navigate through that.
Now that we have seen how to do the grading here, let's go ahead and click back into the Settings block, go into course administration, and click back in Grades, to go back into our gradebook. Now we can see that our final exam has been graded and we have our overall average. Next, we'll look at how to export grades from our gradebook directly into Microsoft Excel.
