Tim and all,
Your instructions match Moodle Docs for the Essay Question type but I am still confused. Here's what Moodle Docs says: "To grade a student's answer in a quiz, follow the 'manual grading' link under quiz results in the navigation block. "
I have the Navigation block visible. It includes the following links:
Site pages (which does nothing)
My profile (nothing there about grading)
If I open up the tree under My courses, I can browse down to the course I'm concerned with and open that up. I then have two more options:
Reports seems to be where the links that you both have provided above should point, but I can not find one that has anything to do with grading, and there's nothing that says "Manual grading."
As of right now, the only way I can find to even get to where you can grade a student's essay questions in a quiz is to click on the Gradebook, click the magnifying glass under the proper quiz, beside the student whose attempt you want to grade. In Google Chrome, this will open up a box where you can enter a new grade for the whole quiz, so you have to click the magnifying glass again to view their attempt, then navigate to the question you're grading manually or click "Show all questions on one page," and finally click "Make comment or override mark."
Finally, you are presented with an editor to make a comment or enter the score and a save button.
This seems mighty akward to me, and I'm dreading walking one of my instructors through it.
Where has this "manual grading" link been moved to in Moodle 2.0?
