BTEC marking 1.1

Release notes

BTEC Grading method

Advanced marking plugin for the BTEC marking scheme based on Refer,Pass, Merit and Distinction where each level is based on completing all the next lowest. So to get a Merit a student must achieve all Pass and all Merit, and to get a Distinction to get all Pass and all Merit and all Distinction. If they miss a Pass criteria they get a refer.

I call this the Gloucestershire college release in honour of the help and feedback given on my visit there. It consists mainly of minor usability tweaks

  • Reduced the size of the description field as it was occupying a disproportional amount of space
  • Added a check to ensure that the assignment has the BTEC scale set
  • Changed CSS so the Add Criterion button lined up properly
  • Changed Marking Options so it is hidden by default as it is not frequently used
  • tweaked code (a constructor) to ensure it would work with PHP7
