The report grade distribution (/grade/report/gradedist) visualizes the grades of students in a course. Changes to letter grades (i.e. the boundary of a grade) can be analysed visually, saved and therefore overwritten if necessary.

Example

Usually letter grades of a course should be communicated to the students at the beginning of a term. Occasionally it occurs that changes to letter grades are necessary. The grade distribution visualizes the grades of students. Changes to letter grades (i.e. the boundary of a grade) can be analysed visually, saved and therefore overwritten if necessary. By means of an alternating graphic chart changes can be seen immediately.

Installation

The module requires the external Highcharts JavaScript library, available free of charge for non-commercial use.

  1. Copy the module code directly to the moodleroot/grade/report/gradedist directory.
  2. Download version 4.x of the Highcharts library from http://www.highcharts.com/download. Copy both, the core module highcharts.src.js from the js subdirectory and the exporting.src.js module  from the js/modules subdirectory into the directory moodleroot/grade/report/gradedist/js.
  3. Open the administration area as an administrator (http://your-moodle-site/admin) to start the installation automatically.

    Thanks David. The plugin description now mentions the requirement to install the external javascript library. I hope we can provide a fix for issue #4 pretty soon.

    Hi David,

    The issue #4 (https://github.com/academic-moodle-cooperation/moodle-gradereport_gradedist/issues/4) should be fixed now for both, the 2.8 and the 2.9 version. I hope the plugin now fulfills the requirements to be moved out of the "Incubating" into the grade reports category.

    Cheers,
    Markus Kemmerling

    Hi Markus, thanks for fixing the issue. I just checked and I am happy to move this approved plugin out of the Incubating category.

    All I got is a black screen where should be the graphics?

    Any ideas?

    "highcharts.src.js" and "exporting.src.js" are placed on the "grade/report/gradedist/js" directory.

    Using Moodle v.3.1.7 and Grade distribution v3.1

    Please try it with a 4.x version, which is what this module is developed against.

    Is there a way I can download v4.0?

    Can't find it on the main site (https://www.highcharts.com/download).

    Have a look at https://code.highcharts.com/; the "specific version" 4.2.2 should do IMO
