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.

    Unfortunately, the Grade Me block still seems to be mostly broken, like it has been for months, except for the Forum plugin. I get these results using the new 2.8 version available from both Moodle and Github.

    Assign plugin - Detects that something needs grading only when using points and seems to work but the rownum is calculated incorrectly and posts the grade to the wrong student, usually, depending on number of students in the course.

    Database plugin - Detects that something needs grading but will not go to a student entry at all.

    Forum plugin - Detects that something needs grading and seems to work ok using both points and scales.

    Glossary plugin - Detects that something needs grading when using points or scales, but keeps showing it as needing grading in the Grade Me block, even after grading has been done.

    Quiz plugin - Detects some quizzes as needing to be graded, even when they don't and only seems to remove ones that really were needing manual grading.

    The little triangles that indicate open/close always indicate open, even when an entry is closed.

    Hi Tyler, I have just re-installed the Grade Me block because of a number of requests from instructors. The cron does not seem to be picking up that the block is there or running the block. I run the cron from CLI and thus it is not populating with anything. Any thoughts? Also, if I enable the Quiz checkbox we get a database error. I am on M28 (latest GIT as of 1/6/2015).

    We just upgraded to Moodle 2.8.2 and installed Grade Me shortly after. The issue we are having is that the Grade Me block is showing a number of assignments that are already marked as needing marking. Even after remarking the assignments they remain in the block showing as needing marking. Has anyone else run into this? Any suggestions?

    I've added new updated versions of Grade Me for Moodle 2.5, 2.6, 2.7 and 2.8. This new version includes a minor fix for grading with custom scales, as well as some contributed fixes from Jerome Mouneyrac and Edutech Leaders.

    @Tyler Bannister - the quiz plugin continues to have a faulty query (linking question attempt ids to quiz ids is a part of the problem) . At this point in time, at least the quiz portion of this module is unusable.

    Hi Benjamin, I think we have a solution for that problem scheduled for review. It will be a few weeks before the next release is ready, but I'll try and make that this quiz problem is addressed for the next release.

    Hello, great work on this plug in. Can someone please walk me through the process to add this block to the home page of a site? I have no troubles adding the block to course pages, but it is not appearing as an option in the 'add a block' drop-down menu on the front page. Many thanks to the contributors for this little gem of a plugin.

    WHat would it take to get you to develop a plug in that includes ungraded forum posts, as well?
    I REALLY need to have a way to give instructors a list of forum postings they have not graded. I'd even pay!

    When i click the checkmark for any student it does take me to the student's grading page but when i save changes the changes pass to the first student of the list no matter if he has made any submission or he has been graded before.

    Hi Jason, the Grade Me block doesn't allow you to add it to the home page because it needs to know which course it's supposed to be displaying unmarked assignement for. At some point in the future we might add a summary view that displays which courses have ungraded assignments but that code doesn't exist yet.

    Hi Mike, Elena, we have a submission waiting for review and integration that might fix both of those problems.

    New versions are up for M26-M28. Many bugs have been fixed (database, quiz, forum, glossary links, and missposted grades among them) and the block can once again be placed on the site index page. I was misinformed about the summary view, and that functionality already existed but was disabled by an overzealous contributor.

    Hi Mike, sorry for the delayed response but already have a forum plugin, you need to enable rating of the forum posts in the activity settings and enable display of the forum posts in the grade_me block settings.

    I use Moodle 2.7.5 with the latest update grademe plugin. I also use group to be assigned to assessor for marking both quiz and assignment. But what is shown only nothing to grade even though there are some quizzes to be marked. Is there anything that i need to setup more in order to make this plugin work? I tried both putting the block on the course and front page, only admin can see the plugin but not teacher.

    Hi Riady, it sounds like you might need to run the Moodle cron. The cron scans the various activity tables and creates a list of gradeable items for each course.
