My school is contemplating moving from Moodle (after about six years) to Schology. I'd like to make one last push for keeping Moodle by arguing for moving our grading from PowerSchool (Pearson product) to Moodle. Does anyone have success stories of a school that has moved to complete grading/report cards via Moodle? Please share your successes and/or difficulties, include your school and/or message me if I and/or my administration can contact your school for confirmation of the success.
I'm particularly interested in how gradebooking with Moodle helps students use it more. My students all know how to log in to PowerSchool to get their grades, but even at the end of the first semester many are still resistant to assignments and study resources I have on Moodle. It seems to me that if grades were all on Moodle, our students would be more inclined to get familiar with it.
I'm also thinking that we may still need to use PowerSchool or some similar program for creating the master schedule, exporting transcripts to universities--I'm not sure how easy it is to do this with Moodle.
Thanks for any tips!
