A simple grading table for both, teachers and students, provides the shortest way to manage activities. You can use the grade item popover to view the last modified date of the activity or its name that refers to the activity detail. It also includes activity due date, grade to pass, and motivational progress bars.

For teachers it allows the definition of grade to pass and provides a link to the activity setting page. The grading table can be placed above or below the course and supports the group mode, formatted grade value, and labels customization. If you want to know more, check the links below.

If you like this plugin, add it to your favorites or share it with others.


Thanks to this plugin, we create a positive educational experience. Therefore, from time to time we prepare questionnaires to improve the eTask topics format and understand how users (both teachers and students) use it. Please check this page regularly if you are interested in participating.

  • There are currently no questionnaires available.

Thanks to

We are using JetBrains to develop this plugin.

    Hi Alexia, which version of your moodle do you use and which version of eTask topics format do you use. Only with this information I can try to reproduce your problem. eTask topics format shows gradable activities only. There cannot be differences between usage across the courses.

    Is it possible for this plugin to work with Onetopic format?

    Hi Synnac, basically that's not possible. The best solution would be to have this plugin as a block, not as a course format, but unfortunately, the Moodle Themes do not allow to place the block above or below the course page, but only to the side and it is too narrow. In other words, if any course format should display eTask, an adequate plugin would have to be created in the given combination and that is a lot of maintenance. I believe that in the future there will be possibilities to solve this.

    This plugin generates an error in Moodle 4.0, when I try to restore a course it shows me this error "Exception - Class 'restore_format_topics_plugin' not found", this same message appears when duplicating resources or activities, if you could verify, I would be very grateful.

    Hi Ramy, it is not possible now. Students are sorted by last name. Logged in student is placed at the first row (student view).
