I have set up a course that our music teacher is using but he has over 130 pupils enrolled per course. This is far to much to view at once so wants a way to whittle it down. I have created an extra profile field so users can select their tutor group when they sign up to our Moodle site and I was wondering if it was possible to filter/search the grade book using this field.
i.e. Can the teacher go on to the gradebook and whittle down from 130 pupils to 30 by selecting the class they belong to?
Does this make sense as I have a feeling it doesn't.
You need to setup some groups in your course. The groups page can create these groups automatically (you enter a number of students per group), or you can create them manually and add students to them afterwards.
You also need to enable groups in your course settings (set the option to "Visible" if you want them to see each other in the course, or to "Separate").
Then, when you access the gradebook (specifically, the grader report), you can filter the list of students by group. If you don't see the "Group" menu at the top left, you just need to click "Show groups" above the report.
Don't hesitate to ask more questions as you need to. There are no stupid questions. Well, almost none ;)
I think all you need to do is to set up your course to have groups. I have a course with 3 separate classes and that's what I did. When I am grading assignments or viewing the gradebook, I can filter by class or view all participants. I can also make assignments and calendar events group specific. I didn't add any fields to the profile. I created the groups manually.
Choose SETTINGS in the Admin block, then VISIBLE GROUPS.
Choose GROUPS in the Admin block
Create the separate groups and assign students to each group. (Students can be in more than one group.)
When you are in Gradebook, you should see a drop down list box at the top left allowing you to filter by the various groups you have set up or to see all participants.
I hope this helps.
Hi kerry - found your post looking for music related stuff - have signed up to have a look and moodle.org and it puts DLG to shame with how good it is and all the development/tutorial/forums stuff which is non existant at DLG - they have no chance of getting near or keeping up with this
think we need to jump ship asap before wasting our time on DLG and hacking staff/students/parents off by switching later
For those of you who don't know, DLG is our current platform which is a basic Sharepoint install.
Kerry, can I suggest for next year you set a different groups with different enrolment codes for each tutor group. ( I use the groups code for the group and enrolment code).
Make the enrolment code in the settings page a hard one to guess and force groups, that way as they enroll (First time in) they are sorted into groups by the enrollment code. (Saves a lot of time for me) I just check the number of members of a group to see if they have all enrolled, tick off the ones who have from my class lists then verbally bug/help those who have not.
Oh , I also put instructions in the summary page (Settings page)
Y7 - KS3 Science homework.
Enrole USING YOUR CLASS CODE (7a1,7b4 Etc. ) IF YOU ARE really STUCK or NOT YEAR 7 enrole using key :- uk
Oh, the uk key puts "Odd, one off" visitors in a separate place so they dont get mixed up in my groups
Hope this helps
