Checkmark module

This module (mod/checkmark) allows teachers to obtain information about the assignments completed by the students prior to a lesson.

Example

A lecture with 500 students is accompanied by a training session. Teachers publish the assignment names and the number of achievable points per assignment. Each week the students work on the assignments and use the checkmark module to inform the teacher in advance about the assignments that they managed to complete. 

In the classroom session where individual students present their solutions, teachers can use a printed copy of the tabular overview to verify the indicated performance. After the training session there is the option of automatic grading on the basis of the assignments checked.

Installation

Copy the module code directly to the mod/checkmark directory. Open the messages page in the administration area to automatically start the installation.

Admin settings

As an administrator you can set the default values instance-wide on the settings page for administrators in the checkmark module:

  • number of assignments (text field)
  • starting number of assignments (text field)
  • individual names (text field)
  • default grades (text field)
  • expiration date for messages (text field)

    Hello Dinis,

    can you give us some more information about your settings? I tried reproducing the bug and conditions, but I had no luck yet.

    Cheers,
    Philipp

    Hi Dinis,

    I would also recommend to use github as bug tracker as mentioned in the useful links section: https://github.com/academic-moodle-cooperation/moodle-mod_checkmark

    Thank you.
    Cheers Kat

    Hi,

    I have installed the plugin on my 3.0 site, created an activity, but I can't see it as a student (there are no restrictions)

    What am I missing here?

    Thanks!

    Hi,

    First I'd like to ask you to report possible bugs via our tracker in the github repository (https://github.com/academic-moodle-cooperation/moodle-mod_checkmark/issues).
    Have you set the activity's visibility to 'show'? Otherwise the activity won't show up for students. But generally speaking, the visibility in the course is usually controlled by Moodle itself.
    Can you give us more information on the issue?

    Hi,

    I am not exactly sure, what happened, but the problem seems to be gone. If I come upon the issue again, I'll report it.

    Thanks for the help!

    Hi,

    that's wonderfull to hear! And concerning using Moodle 3.0: don't forget about Moodle 3.0's support ending (bug-related support ended in November 2016, and security fixes ended today - 2017-05-08)!

    Wish you all the best using mod_checkmark!

    I would not recommend using this plugin, as it is very buggy, and caused us trouble multiple times ever since we installed it in late 2015.

    Dear Stefan,
    we are sorry to hear about your problems with our plugin. If you have any issues, I would recommend to contact us via github and report the bugs, as you did just a couple of hours ago wink. We are eager to hear about your use cases and especially the bugs you’ve encountered while using our Checkmark Module. Especially because we (5 universities in Austria) are using this plugin since a couple of years; the Vienna University of Technology even since 2007.
    If your version of the Checkmark Module is buggy, I would recommend updating to the newest version on a test-system and if the bugs still occur to contact us so that we can fix the bugs as soon as possible. We always try to fix bugs as quickly as possible, and we also try to keep the communication via github up-to-date. Even the bug that you reported in 2015 was a high priority issue for us, but neither you nor we could reproduce it. Bugs that we can’t reproduce are super hard to fix, so it is always useful if at least the reporter can reproduce them.

    Thanks for reporting the two new issues on github - we will do our best to check them and fix them timely.

    Have a great day.
