We are currently using Moodle 2.7 and are in the process of upgrading to 2.8. I absolutely love the new ability to drag and drop quiz questions to reorder them. Is there any chance to get this feature to reorganize grade items in the gradebook setup tab (e.g. reassigning activities to different categories by dragging and dropping instead of using the cumbersome "move" block)? That would make all the difference to our professors.
You are right, it would be lovely, but I don't think it is likely to happen in the near future.
Thank you for your response, Marcus. That's too bad. I hope the development team will consider this in the future.
Moodle is an incredibly powerful product, but things like this that eat up time and frustrate our professors - especially when they feel they can get more user-friendly solutions through other LMS's.
I should make it clear I am only an interested participant and speak with no authority or influence. I have used a commercial VLE that was awful in most respects but had some lovely drag and drop functionality in the Gradebook. I suspect it was not as "powerful" as the Moodle gradebook, but power that most people find to complex or intimidating is no power at all.
