I am currently reviewing moodle with the intent of adopting it as a learning platform for a special needs school.
I have run into a challenge, which I cannot quite figure out.
The scenario is the following:
My students should have points for say: a completed task. Each point should correspond to an hours effort or so. Meaning: A course or topic, that is scheduled one hour should cash in 1 point for successful completion.
What I thus want to do, is that the students gradebook somehow reflects the accumulated points for ALL courses and course categories.
So, say I have a course category, e.g. English
Under this category there are thus several courses, e.g. writing skills, grammar or reading skills.
Each of the courses gradebooks are set up with grade items, so grammar would have a grade item called "nouns" or "synonyms", each of the giving a specified number of points.
But I want in the end to aggregate the grand total for everything, so the gradebook shows like:
English - grammar = 6 points to date
Natural sciences - climate change = 10 points to date
Total = 16 points
Or even for each course category, so English = 6 points, Natural sciences 10 points, etc.
The reason for this setup is, that I want to track the students productivity, and not only the skills.
But I simply cannot find out, how to set this up.
I have attached a picture from an old, windows-based learning system we used, which is technologically obsolete now, and which I would like to replace with Moodle.
