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 and Logan,

    Thanks for the reply. Being able to include lessons in the plugin would be a great asset to me. As the plugins for differen activity types don't seem too difficult, I can hopefully build it myself. Did you look into it earlier? Is it hard(er than I expect)? If you have any pointers on the lesson DB structure or other tips, I would very much welcome them. Thanks a lot in advance!

    Hi all

    Fantastic plugin! Just wondering, is there a way to get it to ignore Assignments that have been hidden? Or another way from it to ignore certain assignments?

    We have added the Grade Me block and use Groups and Groupings but it is displaying assignment submissions to all tutors - including those not allocated to that particular assignment. When a non-allocated tutor clicks on the link it does say ‘this is currently hidden’ but I would prefer if it didn’t show at all. Is there any way to solve this?

    Hi all

    Incase anyone also wants Grade Me to ignore any hidden assignments I've amended the code in plugins/assign/assign_plugin.php to the following:

    $query = ", submissionid, asgn_sub.userid, asgn_sub.timemodified timesubmitted
    FROM {assign_submission} asgn_sub
    JOIN {assign} a ON = asgn_sub.assignment
    JOIN {course_modules} cm ON = cm.instance
    LEFT JOIN {block_grade_me} bgm ON bgm.courseid = a.course AND bgm.iteminstance =
    LEFT JOIN {assign_grades} ag ON ag.assignment = asgn_sub.assignment AND ag.userid = asgn_sub.userid AND asgn_sub.attemptnumber = ag.attemptnumber
    WHERE asgn_sub.userid $insql AND asgn_sub.status = 'submitted' AND a.grade <> 0 AND cm.module='22' AND cm.visible=1
    AND ( IS NULL OR asgn_sub.timemodified > ag.timemodified)";

    So far from testing we think this is having the desired effect.

    Hey all,

    I recently upgraded to moodle 3.0 and I also upgraded the grade_me block to the newest version; however, after doing this I was greeted by an old problem with the block.
    What used to happen in 2.9 and is once again happening is when I click an assignment to be graded, the plugin redirects me to the wrong assignment instance. I think it has to do with the "&rownum=0". It always takes me to the first student enrolled in the course, rather than the student I clicked on.
    As I mentioned, this happened a while ago in 2.9 as well, but an update to the plugin fixed this issue. I really love this plugin, so I hope that this can either get fixed or maybe that I did something wrong while updating the plugin.
    Thanks in Advance

    Hello everybody, I would like to know if this block works with activity "forum"??
  • Fri, Apr 22, 2016, 9:43 PM
    Hello, Hugo...
    There is a setting for the grademe block which will enable forums to be included.
  • Fri, Apr 22, 2016, 10:22 PM
    Thanks Arnie, actually I have included forums in the block setting but is not working, my grademe block is showing just assignments. There is a special configuration for forums to be included in the block grademe?
  • Fri, Apr 22, 2016, 11:01 PM
    Hi Hugo..... Have you also set up a rating and passing grade in the forum settings? That will cause the forum to appear in the gradebook. Cron will also need to run in order for the grade info to pass through.

    We have suspended our dropped students from the classroom and they do not show anywhere except in the participants list, the block, however continues to show these students. Is there a way to restrict it to just the active students? Cheryl--Moodle 2.8.8 GM 2014111005

    Hi, we upgraded to Moodle 2.9 on Friday and are seeing the red check mark take us to the wrong student. It always takes me to the first student enrolled in the course, rather than the student I clicked on. It seems like the same problem Jeroem mentioned above... "I think it has to do with the "&rownum=0"."

    we have tried to install grade me on Moodle 3.0 version
    with ORACLE DB and during the installation we have received this error:

    ORA-01408: such column list already indexed
    CREATE INDEX q_blocgradme_id_ix ON q_block_grade_me (id)
    Error code: ddlexecuteerror

    For the same type of error (ORA-01408) we have found in the web site ,
    This explanation:
    You tried to create an index on a set of columns in a table, but you've already indexed this set of columns.

    If we comment this line in install.xml
    KEY NAME="id" TYPE="foreign" FIELDS="id" REFTABLE="grade_items" REFFIELDS="id" PREVIOUS="primary" NEXT="courseid"
    the installation goes ahead.

    Using Mysql installation in phpmyadmin we have found the following warning:
    The indexes PRIMARY and mdl_blocgradme_id_ix seem to be equal and one of them could possibly be removed.

    Can we just ignore this key or is it important for the functionality of GRADE ME?

    Is it possible to implement a feature for excluding assignments.

    - Assignment 1 ( x )
    - Assignment 2 ( x )
    - Assignment 3 ( x )

    If you click on the x the assignment will be hidden from the current user / teacher. Maybe a complete list could be available for showing the assignments again on the list, under block settings.

    Let me hear from you.

    I have just installed this plugin but my teachers aren't seeing it. When we put their moodle into editing mode it shows up but as soon as we turn off editing it disappears. Admin can see it but it says there is "Nothing to grade" which I am sure is not the case. Any suggestions on what I need to do? I am using Moodle 2.5

    Hi Matteo , we will take a look at that problem as soon as we start our next development cycle.

    Hi Natalie, usually when there are assignment that need grading and Grade Me does not display anything you need to run the cron so that Grade Me will check for new assignments. If running the cron doesn't fix the problem, you may need to check that the block has been configured to look for the right types of gradeable items. If I remember correctly, it should pick up quizzes and assignments by default but the other types will need to be turned on.
