A quiz 'report' add-on for Moodle, like the nomal manual grading report, but which lets you grade one student at a time, rather than one question at a time.

Current versions available: 7

This 'report' is actually a tool like the standard Manual grading quiz report, but which lets you grade all the responses by one student, rather than all the responses to one question.

Once the plugin is installed, you can access the functionality by going to 'Reports' -> 'Manual grading by student' in the Quiz administration block.

To avoid confusion, you may wish to use Moodle's to rename the standard 'Manual grading' report to 'Manual grading by question'. The string you are looking for is in the 'quiz_grading.php' component. You need to edit the 'grading' string.

    Go to the discussion mentioned by Tim Hunt. It is explained there.

    Copy and paste from the link that was already given:

    This is a side-effect of this report being created by the OU, for the OU's own purposes. We wanted (mostly) anonymous marking. Therefore, this report is coded to show each student's ID number, not their name.

    If you want to change this, you would need to change: - change 'u.idnumber' to 'u.*'. - change that whole line to '$row[] = fullname($attempt);'

    (I think that is all you need to do. Please test before using that for real.)

    This report is working well (with the code mods to show and order by Firstname/Lastname) in our 3.0 environment, thank you for sharing it. Has anyone been able to customize the display order so attempts that are pending grading are grouped together? I attempted to modify the code to get the display order to be Grading Required, Last name, First Name but I couldn't crack it.

    This report was created for the OU, and our requirement was to only show the user's idnumber. So, that is what it does. Sorry. Someone could change it to be more like the standard manual grading report.

    Hi all,
    We have installed v1.9 of the manual grading by student plugin on a Moodle 3.11 site, and want to use it in the way the OU originally developed it i.e. anonymous marking of quiz responses per student, rather than per question, with only ID number being displayed. We have this working with an earlier Moodle and plugin version but with v1.9 on the 3.11 Moodle site, when I show or hide the ID number (using grading:viewidnumber in the permissions), it's the email address that appears or disappears. It's the ID number we need to see, so I'm wondering if I'm missing a setting somewhere or if there has been a change to v1.9 of the plugin?

    Many thanks,

    There has been a change.

    In the Moodle admin screens (Admin -> Users -> Permissions -> User policices) there is a setting 'Show user identity', which controls which information about users is shown in reports like the gradebook, participants page, etc.

    The improvement (well, we thought it was an improvement) was to make this report respect that standard Moodle setting, rather than doing its own thing.

    So, hopefully it works for you to change that setting.

    Hi Tim,
    Thanks so much for getting back to me. That setting change does exactly what we need. Thanks again.

    The instructions above indicate, "You need to edit the 'grades' string." The name of the desired string is actually 'grading'.
