We are having issues with the Lock/Unlock features of the gradebook.... it is very difficult for faculty to understand when to lock and unlock the gradebook. here is my explanation to a faculty member. Can you explain why we must lock and unlock the gradebook? Please help us resolve this issue.. Thanks!!!
We are using Moodle 2.3.3 version
The Crazy lock/unlock is the culprit. So here is what you do.
- Before you enter grades, go to Categories and Items and click on the lock next to COURSE TOTAL to “UNLOCK” ONLY the course total.
- Enter your grades.
- Then click on the Lock next to Course Total to LOCK the course total.
So in essence.. the Course Total has to be “locked” for students to see their grade. However, if the course total is locked when you enter a new grade, the course total is not changed because it is locked. That is why you must “Unlock” the course total first… then enter the grades so the course total will accumulate the total scores and then Lock again so students can see the accumulated course total.
All other grade columns in the gradebook stay UNLOCKED.
