Gradebook

Grades extract from Moodle 1.9
 

We have 10 courses on our Moodle site and would like to extract the grades.

Can someone please confirm if a gradebook extract is done by course or can you extract the whole gradebook for all courses. Also will need some direction on how to do this.

Management want usage reports so that we can judge course completions.

thank you

By default, it's at course level - you have to export the gradebook from each course individually.

However, it's possible to write reports which combine gradebooks across courses; I've written one which combines grades from all courses in a category into one spreadsheet, and also one which simply allows one-click download of a zip file containing all of the individual gradebook exports from courses in a chosen category.  Each was for a different purpose, and the combined spreadsheet probably wouldn't be of use to anyone except the department I put it together for - but the zip approach is probably generic enough to be useful.  If you're interested in trying it out, I'm happy to send you a copy (with some brief instructions) - if you find that it works and is useful, maybe I'll consider releasing it more widely (i.e. via the plugins database).

Paul, thank you so much for your prompt response, this could be really helpful. If you could share the process that would be much appreacited and we would give feedback on the process.

Please advise if you need server access to run your report, or is it a job that you could access as if accessing a lesson?

The resulting spreadsheet will give us a way oa massaging that data as the back end reprting as you know is non existant, this is a downfall of Moodle in a corporate setting.

Cheers Sue
