Although we can use Moodle's automatic grading activities, such as assignments, we might sometimes want to add our own grades for tasks students might have done offline, or to grade an activity for which Moodle doesn't by default offer grading. So in this video, we're going to look at how we can add grade items manually to the grade book. So, to do this, we go into the Settings block, and we click the link Grades, and this takes us by default to the Grade Report. So we select from the drop-down, or you might have tabs, Categories and items - Full view, and, when we scroll down to the bottom, we see that we've got the option.
Add grade item. And if we click that button. We can then give a name to the item, so we know what we're actually grading for. So let's call it Face to Face Presentation. There are other options we can set, for example a maximum or minimum grade, and because we've already set up a category in a previous video, we can choose the category into which we want this grade to go. So let's select the Wizard of Oz category and then click Save the changes.
Now if we go to the Grade a report we can now see that in the Wizard of Oz category we've got a manually added grade for a face to face presentation. An so, we would simply type in the grade which we want to give our students, for example, George here, for that particular activity. An so, in this video, we've learned how to add a grade item manually, to enable us to use Moodle's grade book for recording tasks done offline. Or else Moodle tasks which aren't automatically graded.
