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.

    Hi Tyler, the cron job has been running and the previous version of grademe plugin works well, except it didn't recognise the group that has been set up. After I updated to the recent version, it only shows "nothing to grade" as admin and couldn't display the block to the teacher.

    It would be great if I can get some guidance smile

    We're doing another release of Grade Me today to address a bug and a performance issue with quizzes. We've dramatically reduced the number of database rows that need to examined to determine quizzes that need marking on large sites (My test case site went from examining around 390 million rows to examining around 130,000 rows). The previous set of releases also included an unannounced reduction in the number of rows examined (by around 10x on my test site). The bug fix stops questions with grades from hiding quizzes with unmarked manually graded questions. In practice, any quiz with both automatically graded questions and manually graded questions was prevented from showing up in the Grade Me block.

    Hi Riady, I took a look at the code that handles groups and it seems that groups will be ignored if the user has the "moodle/site:accessallgroups" capability. As for the "nothing to grade" problem you are experiencing, it might have been caused by the bug we just fixed in Please update the Grade Me block and see if that resolves the problem.

    Is it possible to show only grades for the group that teachers are assigned to? It would be amazingly helpful!

    Hi Lael, if your courses are set to "Separate Groups" and your teachers don't have the "accessallgroups" capability on the course, then the teachers should only see the students in group or groups assigned to them.

    Hi Tyler,
    I am using Moodle 2.8.5+ and have tried both recent versions of Grade Me, and 2.8.04, and I am experiencing the same problem with both of them where the normal Grade View of assignments does not work correctly.

    When first installed Grade Me seems to work and the Moodle Grade View page also. However once students start adding submissions, I get four possible results when trying to go grade an assignment via the Grade View page.
    1. Sometimes I will get the correct student page for grading.
    2. Sometimes I will get the wrong students page for grading.
    3. Sometimes I get a page with no formatting and a warning about, "Coding error detected, it must be fixed by a programmer: Row is out of bounds for the current grading table: 5" The number at the end changes for different students.
    4. The fourth result is that sometimes I get a debug message about Undefined offset and "Coding error detected, it must be fixed by a programmer: PHP catchable fatal error."

    Have you or anyone else seen this result or are you able to reproduce it?

    Thanks for any feedback,

    If you use not the default grading scale for the assignments, then nothing will be shown. Any solution-ideas for that? reg,

    I'm getting an issue where the Grademe block isn't showing to teachers. It only appears when the teacher turns "editing on" and when it does appear it's empty. Groups are set in my course and I haven't changed any of the settings.

    I also found that finished essay quizzes and other activities aren't showing as well.

    I'm using the latest Grademe version and Moodle 2.8.5+.

    Please help.

    Hi Tyler,

    Thanks for your quick response! I think the issue might be that I'm admin, so get a different view. We generally use visible groups. Might it be possible to include a dropdown to select the group you want to see?

    Hi ,

    I seem to having the same problem as Riady Santoso. I've tried installing both the latest versions of the Grade Me plugin and have run the cron and purged the cache, yet the block still sates that there is nothing to grade for both teacher and admin. We have about 8 tests that have 3 manual (essay) questions that need grading these were received prior to the installation. I also submitted a test quiz containing 3 manual (essay) questions after Grade Me was installed. The block still stated that there nothing to grade. I noticed in the plugin overview that are instances recorded for the block.

    Moodle version 2.7.5

    Any help greatly appreciated

    I can confirm the same issue Riady and Nick have reported. It looks like this query:

    is showing only automatically graded (unfinished) attempts. Any help to rewrite this query to actually show ungraded attempts will be very appreciated. Thanks!

    Hi Tyler,

    We are also experiencing similar problems with the block ONLY showing Assignments that have not been marked, but not showing quizzes (Manual grading) that have not been marked. We have installed the latest version of your plug in.

    Thanks for your help.

    I think I've found a problem with the quiz query. I've sent it for peer review and testing and should have an update ready soon.

    New versions for M26, M27 and M28 are up that should fix the quiz questions not showing up for testing.

    Hi Tyler,
    thanks for the update. It works like a charm! I can confirm great performance improvement (with old query it took around 15 seconds to generate all submissions for approx. 6 courses, and often the request would time out - now it's less than 2 seconds!!).
    Also, it appears that all submissions are correctly fetched for both for quizzes and assignments.

    Thank you.
