Automatic grading of uploaded assignments

Everyone,

I am using Moodle 2.4.4+ and would like to know if there is a way to have the system automatically assign a passing grade to a file submission assignment.  We have a course that requires employees to download and print a form, fill it out, scan and upload it back to the system.  We don't need to look at each individual form, just know that they have uploaded it to move on with the course.  Is there a way to automatically have the system assign a grade or remove it from grades all together?

Hi Scott,

Have a look at Activity Completion. I believe you could make subsequent activities unavailable until the upload is complete, and the completion criterion can be set to the student submitting a file.

Does that get you anywhere?

Cheers,

Rob

+1 for Rob's solution

Just make the following activities hidden until the initial activity is completed.

But why download and print and scan it back? Can't the form itself be an online activity such as designing a quiz or questionnaire as your form? The responses are then usable as well in whatever kind of analysis you may want to do. The authentication onto Moodle in the first place could obviate the need for a hard copy signature as proof of personalisation if that is part of the issue.

Hi,

I'd be very interested in a solution to this too. I would actually use it slightly differently in that automatic grading of a file submission assignment would allow the gradebook to display a value such as 'submitted'. 

Our courses are made up of a variety of File Submissions, Quizes, Lessons etc. so the gradebook can be confusing to students.

Any help would be great.
