[Return to Moodle 2: Gradebook: Overview]
The Gradebook in Moodle 2 is equivalent to the Gradebook in the previous version of Moodle. It allows instructors to view and edit the grades of all the students on the same page.
How to Open the Report:
1. Log in to Moodle and select your course.
2. Click the Edit button to turn editing on.
3. Click on the Grades link in the Administration Block on your course front page.
4. Below is the most expanded view of the Gradebook view. It shows every item and category (and every item therein).
Last Name/ First Name; Email Address
This column provides the names of each of the students in the class. To reorder the list alphabetically by last name or first name, click the corresponding option. Click the arrow symbol to toggle the list as ascending or descending. The user may also organize the list by email address by clicking Email address. The arrow that appears next to that, will also reorder the list as ascending or descending.
The user may also use the icon next to each student name to view an individual student's grades.
Items and Categories
A graded item provides a place to enter grades. By switching into the editing mode each grade can be manually changed. Arrows at the top of each graded item column are used to sort the students according to ascending or descending grade for the corresponding item. Categories can be manipulated in the same ways, but may also be collapsed to hide the items they contain by clicking the minimize icon next to the category's name.
The Course Total show the calculated results of all of the graded items in the course. The manner of this calculation is determined by the Aggregation method set for the overall course category and any sub categories that are added.
Toggle between the three icons below:
Grades Only: Clicking this icon will show all the graded items in a category, but not the category totals.
Aggregates Only: Clicking this icon will show the totals for each category, but not the graded items.
Full View: Clicking this icon will show all graded items and category totals.
Grade Analysis: Clicking this icon will take the user to a page detailing the individual students' results for the corresponding item.
