Shows a teacher all of the assignments and manual quiz questions (essays and file responses) that have been submitted, but not graded. The block is configured to work with groups that is, teachers will only see the assignments submitted by students if they are both members of the same group. You'll have to let me know if it works with courses that don't use groups at all. You can install the block on the Front Page and it will show ungraded assignments for ALL courses, and if you put the block on a course page it will only show the ungraded assignments for that course.

    I believe the issue is that the Authenticated User role is defaulted to "can view blocks" ( or maybe I added that permission to the authenticated user role so they could see blocks on the Dashboard... I can't recall now), so a student due to the authenticated user role can see the block, but alway with the "nothing to grade" message. I have to remove that basic "view blocks"permission 100% of the time each time I copy a course or add the grade me block to a new course. So I think that's what is meant by the student role can see it. This was persistent in Moodle 3.5, 3.7, and currently on 3.9 for me. Again, maybe I added that view block role so other blocks could be seen outside of the course.

    We have noticed that the assignments for a course are listed in the Grade Me block in an order we can't seem to change. We have two "chunks" of gradeable assignments, and "Chunk 2" is always listed before "Chunk 1." Within each chunk, the assignments are sorted in the order we expect (the order the students work on them). But the "chunks" are in the reverse order we'd expect them to be. Is there anything we can do to affect the sorting? Or should I submit this somewhere to be looked at?

    Hi Dev team.. Great plugin
    Having an issue with site speed. Plenty Ram, Stirage etc. New VPS server 16gb ram etc etc.
    Currently upgrading from Moodle 3.5, now sitting at 3.8.9 and installed the 3.8 version of the plugin.
    Issue is for the Teacher / Trainers the plugin really bogs the system response time down from page to page.
    The plugin is displayed on the Main page for the trainers / teachers

    This plugin looks like exactlly what I need! We are using Moodle Workplace - does this plugin work with it? We will be using teh Tenancy functionality in Workplace, and I saw a comment that that may cause issues.

    @Ian - the grade me plugin will work for admins who have the ability to see all students across all tenants - however it doesn't work as well for people who are non-admins and therefore cannot see all students across all tenants.

    Where this is mainly noticeable is if I put the plugin onto the dashboard, I (as admin) can see all unmarked assignments across the entire site, however the average non-editing teacher will see very little, as they will only submissions from anyone in the same tenancy as them.

    If I add the plugin at course level, it does work - it is only if you add it as dashboard level that it doesn't work due to the multi-tenancy issue.

    Hi Dave,
    Many thanks for the quick reply. I have both teacher and admin rights, so I should be able to all unmarked assignments. This is exactly what I wanted to know, thanks again!

    I read this thread (which is now locked)

    I don't use groups but I want to assign an assignment to a given teacher. All students take the assignment, but the assignments are assigned to one or another teacher.

    I installed the Grade Me block but I don't see how I can do that. Can you help?

    Since Moodle 4.2 seems to require all references to the old Assignment 2.2 be removed, the Grade Me plugin will need to do the same thing. It would be nice if it could be done soon.

    Seems to be four places in the lib.php file and the whole assignment folder in the grademe/plugins/ folder.

    I've tested this and it seems okay in Moodle 4.1, and in Moodle 4.2.

    What is the status of this block? Is it actively developed?

    I love Grade Me, and all works well. However I have two things I would like to see fixed, if possible.
    Grade Me assignments should open on a new tab, so that you don't have to go through all the navigation each time. AND If a quiz question is set to zero, it seems Grade Me does not recognize the quiz as being completed and will not clear it, even though the quiz is awarded a mark in Moodle.

    Thank you for this great plugin.

    Could you please tell me in which order the assignments of a course are listed? Is it ID or assignment name?

    Thank you very much

    Hello. This plugin looks great! Unfortunately, it's not working for me. I've already opened an issue ( because I cannot see what is there to be graded. The only message I can see is "Nothing to grade!", when there are many ungraded assignments on my site. I've tried checking all the boxes (Admins View All, Hidden course items shown, etc.) and nothing changes ...

    Hello, is there any resolution on allowing it to work easily on the dashboard page? We are having this issues with teachers not being able to see everything on there as well.

    @Gretchen - I have the grade me plugin working on the dashboard on lots of Moodle sites, and have never had a problem, try adding the block to one of the courses that has assignments needing grading - do the items show up there? If they don't then I guess the scheduled task isn't running properly. if they do, then it must be a permissions issue. If you use the Grade me block on Moodle Workplace, then that doesn't work for teachers on the dashboard, due to the way that moodle workplace tenancies works.

    @Dave - Sorry for the delay! I found a solution. During our last Moodle update somehow the permissions for the instructor to "View" the block got messed up. I fixed the user permission and it seems to be fine now.
