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.
A very efficient way to grade an assignment is to use Moodle's quick grading feature. To access quick grading, all we need to do is find the assignment that we want to grade. In this case we will go into the Week 2 Personal Contribution Assignment. When we arrive on the grading page, if we scroll down to the bottom, we can check the box for allow quick grading and then click the button for save preferences. Now, we have a view, or we can assign a grade to each student. We can enter comments or feedback directly to the student, Nice job.
We can even select that comment, press Command+C or Ctrl+C on our keyboard to copy it and then for each additional student, we can assign a grade, click in the Comment, paste in the Response and repeat for all of our students. Now that we've assigned a grade and any comments to each student, all we need to do is come to the very bottom of the page and click the button that says Save all my feedback. It's very important to click the Save all my feedback button, because if you go out of this page and you haven't clicked that button, then none of the grades that you entered would be saved.
With quick grading, you're able to quickly assign Grades and Comments to all your students and save them all at once. Let's go ahead and to return back a Gradebook by clicking on the See all course grades in the upper right corner. And in the next movie, we will look at how to grade an assignment where students have uploaded a file.
