Anyone have any thoughts on what might be causing this glitch?
Please check the course setting "Show grades". If set to no, then the grades link doesn't appear for students.
PS Just moving this discussion to the gradebook forum...
Thanks for the response. I wish it were that simple, but in fact "show grades" is set to 'yes'. I even went so far as to change it to 'no', save changes, then went back and reset it to 'yes'. Still, the Admin block does not appear in the student view.
I used "sticky blocks" to add (a duplicate) Administration block. It appeared in my view. But, it did not show up in the student's.
I've looked into 'permissions' in the 'assign roles in the block' to see if anything unusual was going on there. Everything is OK, it is set so that students have permission to view the block.
I have run out of places that I can think of to look. If you have any more suggestions, I would welcome them.
Permissions for View your own grade report and View the overview report have to be allowed.
From your Moodle home page, look in Site Administration > Grades > General Settings.
On the right-hand side, the first set of check-boxes indicates who is being graded in the grade book. Make sure "Student" is checked and hit Save changes at the bottom of the page.
Just my two cents about other places to look!
However, I cannot get outcomes to display to the student. I do have 'view the outcomes report' on in student permissions but this only gives them an overview of the class outcomes. There is nowhere that they can view their own outcomes.
In Tasmania and other Australian states, we need this to be able to run criterion based assessment. Students under this system do not receive a single mark, they receive instead an A- D mark for several criteria used to judge the assessment piece. For example criterion one: Accucacy ; criterion 2 ; reasoning criterion 3 research.
So students need to be able to see their own criteria results as they are the best guide to the specific actions needed to improve their writing. I am beginning to wonder whether the current design of outcomes actually allows for transparency to the students or not?
Hopefully someone in this discussion may be able to address this problem for me. I have set up a custom scale, sitewide and in courses which goes 1c,1b,1a,2c,2b..... to 8a, to reflect National Curriculum levels in the UK. I mark pupils work against this scale and in the user report of the pupils they see the grades as pictued below
User report - Test Account
|My Public Information System||8.1 Public Information Systems||4c||37.50 %|
However, in the overview report to see their levels across courses, no grades are shown, as below.
Overview report - Test Account
Why is this, does it have something to do with my custom scale or is it just not possible in this view.
Any help greatly appreciated.
Thanks for your suggestion, in the end I found a solution from another thread. What I hadn't done was in the ADMIN - GRADES - CATEGORIES AND ITEMS - COURSE TOTAL section edited the course total to display a scale and then selected my national curriculum custom scale. When I did this the levels appeared in the Overview Report. What I now need to figure out is whether it is possible to remove the percentage calculated and displayed in the USER REPORT as it makes my pupils look as if they are not achieving when they are! I am using 1.9.2.
