Rather than click on specific assignments/tasks/etc., is there a screen anywhere that list ALL student submitted assignments that have not been graded? This would save a ton of time, and I'd not have to "drill down" assignment-by-assignment.
If you would like to see this option in Moodle, please vote for this tracker:
I went to that link but could not see anywhere where I could vote for this. Where do I vote?
You have to log in and then there will be a vote button in the right hand column towards the top of the page.
I came from a different LMS that had this feature, and it's incredible to me that Moodle doesn't have it too! But we've found a pretty good solution with the "AJAX Marking Block," which does exactly what you've asked for. Its only drawback is that it doesn't check for non-core assignment types. But the basic ones are there, which cover 95% of everything we use.
Nobody seems to want to reply to a non techie question so I am asking you too....these addons/plugins or marking blocks like the one you mention, can a mere professor add this to their courses or does this have to be done by administrators in the whole system at our university? Thanks if you can help me answer this, as I do not have any admin privileges, but don't know if plugins like you mention are available to mere faculty members (I am supposing that most people responding to queries are mere faculty, but the 'experts' like you have some sort of admin privileges). Ps. My version is 2.3 which has only just gone live on our system (so no hope of 2.4 anytime soon on our system)
Addon's and plugins do need to be added in by an adminstrator. You do need to check with that person to see if they can be added. Since you have just gone live, there may be somethings on the list for later implimentation.
