Is it possible to change the default Grade book entry from a - to 0 even if there is no quiz or any other graded component to the course.
No I am not actually trying to teach any class a lesson and give them all zero. My problem is that I have a number of courses that do not have any graded component such as quiz. To complete the course users just have to view the presentation. I have this set up in the Course Completion settings so I have no problem there.
My problem is that I want to run a report (using an outside reporting tool) that will show the course completion status of all courses some of which have grades and some which don't. If I don't display grades in the report and I just display course completion status then I have no problem and I see all the courses. But if I want a grade column in the report that will show a grade when there is one available any courses without a graded component disappear from the report.
So I thought for those courses if I could efficiently somehow add a mark of 0 or Null (anything really) to all users then there would be a grade item entry in the database and it would appear in the report. I realise that I could directly add a mark of 1 or zero to the grade report but this is not really practical. Ideally I would like to do this automatically for all users.
Thanks in advance for any advice or help.
