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.

    We also cannot get the Grade me block to work on Moodle 3.3. It's a great plugin - our faculty are using it, but when we upgrade from 2.9 we'll have to lose it until an update is provided. Thanks for your work on this!

    Isn't it odd that an LMS as old and well established as Moodle has no native functionality to alert a teacher to ungraded work? I am just curious....what do teachers do who don't have this plugin? Do they seriously go to each of their courses and manually check to see if anyone has submitted anything?
    Incidentally, the notification button in the upper right of Moodle 3.1 and up only notifies you when someone submits an assignment. It does not provide a notification for when someone submits a quiz. unless I am missing it....?

    @Murray - teachers will probably be set to get an email notification for each submission or quiz. That's they way we have it set up - as well as Grade Me. Some people prefer emails, some prefer Grade Me.

    @murray - I feel your pain. Moodle should have built-in functionality to alert a teacher of their ungraded work. This option should have existed a long time ago. We have been using Moodle since 2008 and have almost switched to a different LMS multiple times because our teachers get so frustrated with how Moodle handles alerts for manually graded work. Nearly every other LMS that I have tested has this functionality built in. It is very odd that Moodle is so behind in this area, which is why the Grade Me block is so important to so many schools and why we are very appreciative to all the work done to this plugin. There used to be a block called AJAX Marking Block, that worked flawlessly, but that block has not been updated for a long time.

    To answer your question "what do teachers do who don't have this plugin?" A lot of our teachers use the Recent activity block. It will tell you what has been turned in, but it is only convenient if you are grading all of your work every time a you log into your class. If a teacher is grading work every few days, they would then have to use the full report of the Recent activity block, which can be very cumbersome to look through, especially since it shows both automatically and manually graded work.

    Using the email notification option is not really a good option for us. Our average teacher has about 225 - 250 students. If each student is turning in about 3 manually graded assignments per week, that would mean the teacher would be receiving up to 750 individual emails for manually graded work. Our school model allows students to turn in late work all semester. This means it could be the last week of the semester and students may be turning in work from the first month of that semester, so obviously it is not convenient for teachers to open every single manually graded assignment each week to hunt for ungraded work.

    Since Moodle does not really have a good option for showing teachers what is ungraded, here is what a lot of our teachers do:
    -Go to a course
    -Go to the Recent activity block
    -Click on 'Full report of recent activity'
    -Deselect the date (next to enable)
    -Click 'Show recent activity'
    -Use ctrl-F and search for 'Grade: -'
    -This will highlight all ungraded work.

    Yes, this is cumbersome, but it seems to be the best built-in option in Moodle.

    We have been using this plugin for about two years now and its great, however it is making Moodle really slow to open. It takes about 3-4 minutes for Moodle to start up once logged in and I had someone at Wise.Net (SMS) look at why and they stated that it was due to the GradeMe plugin logic. Is anyone else having this issue, and if so, how can I fix this?

    Most of our teachers are simply working on hard (or semi-hard) deadlines. So they may only go to an assignment once or twice to grade. However, I am one of the few we have that also us e a more rolling submission and revision methodology for some courses so it is less convenient without some viable mechanism.

    We are having trouble getting the groups feature to work in Moodle 3.1. Students are assigned to groups and teachers are assigned to those same groups, but teachers are seeing all the assignments that need grading - not just the ones from their group... Any suggestions?

    We noticed that if an instructor enters comments/feedback for an assignment, but they don't enter a grade for the item, the item is still removed from the grade me block. The items still shows up in the Assignment activity grader summary as "Needs grading" and in the annotation grader view as "Requires grading", but it's gone from the Grade me block. Just wondering if this issues has been brought up?

    Any upgrade to Moodle 3.4?
  • Sat, Feb 10, 2018, 4:27 AM
    It shows I have nothing to grade with the latest update but I know I have assignments to grade. I am on Moodle 3.4+.

    I'm having an issue where the grade me block only shows up when page editing is turned on. Otherwise it disappears. It only shows up all the time for system administrators.

    Just wanted to update on status for 2018 and answer recent questions, noting we'll be working through any open issues on the tracker over the next few months:

    * The Moodle 3.4 stable branch is available now, and should be accessible via both and our public GitHub repository.

    * We are working on an issue within the current sprint to resolve the Grade Me block disappearing instead of showing "Nothing to grade" for editing teacher and other course roles, so I'm thinking @Yolanda Chang this may be the same issue you're experiencing - fix to be released soon

    * @J. Michael Williams I know we did resolve a similar bug in the past, however I don't see any current open issues for this exact problem of assignments failing to appear. If this is something you're still experiencing though please feel free to submit an issue on our bug tracker ( ) - we'll be reviewing those to see which are outstanding vs already resolved, then creating internal issues as needed.

    Thank you for your feedback and suggestions smile
