I teach at a Technical High-school whith open entry / exit and self-directed studies.There are two features which would make moodle exceptional for our envinroment:
1. Assignments based on "Time to Complete" not absolut dates. Students start the assignments whenever they get to them, but they have a fixed amount of time to complete them. This is difficul to manage with the current assignment module.
2. A "self grading option" in the rubric based assignment. We can use the activity tracking feature to display examples of the completed work after the student has turned in his/her work with the rubric so they can self-evaluate their work.
I hope this is the right place to ask this.
