I've installed Moodle 1.9 with XAMPP on a development machine for testing and everything seems to be happy. I've created a teacher account and a student account, a course with a couple of graded actvities, etc.
I've set up all the gradebook options as necessary, but I can not look at a gradebook. It would appear from the video tutorials that there should be some kind of link for it just on the main page or the main course page. When I am a student, I see nothing of any kind, and when I am an admin, I get the gradebook link under admin tools, but it only takes me to the options for setting up my grade book.
At first I thought I needed to at a gradebook block, but I don't see anything there either. What am I missing?
