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.

    Would be anyway possible to customize the plugin to show the number of attempt? (1st, 2nd, 3rd..) As we try to give priority to the latest attempts first.

    Using this block currently and love it! Curious to know how it works with groups. I read somewhere that trainers (teachers) should only be able to see assessments which need grading if they're in the same group as the student but that doesn't seem to be the case in at least one of our courses. Is that perhaps something to do with the way we've setup groups??

    Looking forward to trying V3.6 when it’s released. Any chance someone could post a comment when that happens as although Moodle notifies followers of be comments it doesn’t notify followers when new versions are released (and as we can’t instal the plugin until V3.6 is available we won’t be notified that way)

    Hi, I have moodle 3.5.2 and have just installed the grade me plugin we did not previously have it as we are quite new to moodle. It is saying 'nothing to grade' even though there is. What could I be doing wrong? I really just want to see quizzes and forums, both which are enabled. If anyone can assist would be greatly appreciated smile

    Are there any updates or plans to update for 3.6 or 3.7? Thanks

    Grade Me block has been released for Moodle 3.6 on our GitHub as well as the Plugins directory, and we will be working on a Moodle 3.7 release in the coming weeks.

    Like Jacinta, I also get the "Nothing to Grade" message, although I know there are assignments that have been submitted. I clicked the "Refresh quiz attempts needing grading" link and it still shows nothing? Am I missing something?

    I encoutered an issue like Jason Horner and Jacinta. I installed the fresh Moodle version 3.7 with plugin Grade Me, made some courses, assignments, submissions from the student but both Admin and the teacher inside the Course still the "Nothing to grade" on the block at the Dashboard. The same question: Did I miss something or this plugin does not work with ver 3.7?

    Seeing issues in v3.6 with the latest release. The block does not reflect an accurate number of quiz questions that need manual grading. Once you click through to the quiz itself the number of questions needing manual grading is much higher.

    Will this version work with Moodle 3.7?

    Just noting that Grade Me has not been released for Moodle 3.7 yet, although we will be working on an official 3.7 release in the coming weeks. In testing this latest Moodle 3.6 release on 3.7 though it does appear to work as expected. A few things to check to ensure the block functions correctly are:
    * Ensure that the assignment type in question is checked to Show in plugin settings under Site administration -> Plugins -> Blocks -> Grade Me
    * Ensure that both the 'cache_grade_data' and 'reset_block' Grade Me cron tasks are set to execute on a frequent enough schedule for your needs under Site administration -> Server -> Tasks -> Scheduled tasks
    * Moodle cron is set to run on the server and is executing successfully (i.e. Grade Me tasks are actually getting run and are not blocked by any other failing cron tasks)
    * The user expecting to see items available for grading in the Grade Me block instance either possesses the 'grader' role in the course in question, OR is a site administrator and the "Admins View All" setting is enabled under Grade Me block preferences

    Also noting that the Grade Me block doesn't display the individual number of questions within quizzes needing graded, but rather the total number of quiz submissions that are ready for grading (i.e. it's a count of student submissions for a quiz, not a count of individual questions within that quiz.) If you would like to submit any bug reports please feel free to do so on our issue tracker at - please include all relevant data including version of Moodle, description of problem, and complete steps to reproduce.

    Hello - where can I submit some screenshots that can be used here on the plug ins page? The current image is so completely dated - I want to submit newer ones as the sample images.

    Hello, I'd like to know if it is possible somehow to see (in a configurable report, for example) all the teachers who haven't graded their students yet in order to control them. For example, I want to see all the teachers with a number of ungraded assignments sitewide). Maybe there are people who know how to set up such a report. Please, help

    Does anyone know why the Grade Me block would be showing assessments that have already been graded?

    Thank you for your feedback:

    @Ksenia if you'd like to see assignments across all courses you can add the Grade Me block to the site homepage or your user dashboard page which will allow you to see assignments across all courses in the Grade Me block, and you can set the block to display site-wide on all pages if you'd like. Currently there is no additional configurable report built into Grade Me block that lists te information you've mentioned, however if you have a feature request please feel free to submit a new improvement idea on our issue tracker at

    @Jessica you may want to doublecheck that both the Grade Me scheduled tasks are set to run under Site administration -> Server -> Tasks -> Scheduled tasks, and that you have configured the main cron process to run per Moodle documentation at . If you continue to have problems with assignments showing up in the block after being graded please feel free to submit a bug on our issue tracker listed above, including all relevant data such as version of Moodle, description of problem, and complete steps to reproduce.
