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.

    @Thamarai Thamarai

    What version of moodle are you using? If it's >=2.7 then that's why you're getting that error.

    We've made some fixes for Grade Me and M27 and it should be released in a few weeks or sooner.

    I've uploaded new versions for M25, M26 and M27. All three versions include fixes for the second submission issue and incorrect forum post links. The M27 release also includes some basic fixes to allow Grade Me to work in M27.

    I tested your 2.5 and quizzes still don't show. Just FYI. I've already fixed it for me.

    Could you please tell me where to fix in the code since ihave same problem with you in 2.7 and still cant figure out where to change

    @yoshi What same problem are you having with 2.7? Quizzes?
  • Thu, Sep 18, 2014, 8:58 PM
    Quiz activities should work starting from 2.7. Quizzes that were created prior to 2.7 may not work. If anyone is still having issues with new quizzes that have been created in 2.7 using our newest release then provide a detailed set of steps you're following to create the quiz.

    An important note to remember about quizzes and grading is the notion of "auto" grading. Some quiz types such as "true/false" are automatically graded therefore they do not show up in the Grade Me block as requiring grading which is the intended behavior of the plugin.

    Yes, I have problem with quizzes which is created in 2.7 and its is essay question which is not "auto" grading. the assignment part works perfect but it doesnt show quizzes which has a status for "requires grading". and yes using newest release of M27.

    what kind of steps to create quiz should I provide? I have inserted each quiz from Question Bank which was made just before and its all essay question.

    @yoshi Do these instructions work for you for essays?:
    1. First, navigate to Site administration > Plugins > Blocks > Grade Me and ensure that the option "Show Quizzes" is checked.
    2. As admin, add an instance of the Grade Me block to the test course page
    3. Turn on page editing and click on "Add an activity or resource" and select the Quiz activity
    4. Enter a name for the quiz and click "Save and display"
    5. Click on the "Edit quiz" button
    6. Click on the "Add a question" button
    7. Select "Essay" and click "Add"
    8. Enter the essay name and text and click "Save changes"
    9. Log in as the test user and click on the quiz from the test course page. Attempt the quiz and submit it when finished.
    10. As admin, run the Moodle cron (visit http:///admin/cron.php in your browser)
    11. As admin, navigate to the test course page
    12. From the Grade Me block, expand the listing of the essay quiz you created and click on the red checkmark icon

    @Yoshi I had to change the code and how it queries the information in the blocks/grade_me/plugins/quiz/quiz_plugin.php. Then I had the change the lib.php file to pull the correct report page. I works for me on 2.5.3, but I'm not sure if it will work on 2.7 yet. I'm still waiting on my IT Department to create a new server that supports the new PHP. The way it's going, I think I might create my own. If you want the code, just let em know.

    @Tim Gus
    thank you for the instruction. i have just tried the steps u mention above but still no luck. then i realise that I can not access to admin/... page any more with the error message of "Fatal error: Class 'question_state' not found in /home/xxx/public_html/xxx/blocks/grade_me/plugins/quiz/quiz_plugin.php on line 39".
    I havent touch or change any code in grade me plugin by the way. so the line number should be same as released version.
    @Tim Dyer
    Thank you for the reply. I prob need to find a solution to be able to access admin/... or even block/.. otherwise i am totally stuck.
  • Fri, Sep 19, 2014, 9:19 AM
    the code line 39 is
    AND qa.state = '".question_state::$finished."'"."
  • Tue, Sep 23, 2014, 10:39 AM
    found the solution. i just changed some code in quiz_plugin.php and now it works perfect in 2.7. really love this block. thank you so much
