A Moodle Report that shows all student feedback on one page.

The Moodle My Feedback report appears in the My Profile > Activity Reports menu and allows students to see an overview of all their grades and feedback for assessment activities such as Moodle Assignments, Turnitin Assignments (v1 & v2), Workshops and Quizzes. It provides their visible grades and a link to their submission and any feedback that has been released to them. Note: anything hidden in the gradebook or on the course will not display.

The report is intended to help students understand the variety of feedback they receive. It can also be used to identify similarities between feedback received from across modules and years to help students see how they can improve their work in future assessments.

See how it's being used at UCL: 

Potential privacy issues

All versions before v2.8.11 contain a bug that reveals grades before the post date on some, but not all, Turnitin assignments. Please update to v2.8.11 to ensure you don't encounter this error. V2.4 of this plugin shows numeric grades regardless of the settings on the course or grade item they represent. Displaying the grade in the format defined within each assessment is implemented in V2.5 (available for moodle V2.8+). Take care with using this plugin as it reveals grades to students, so any changes that you make need to be tested thoroughly to ensure they don't reveal hidden grades. E.g. Turnitin assignment grades are only visible after the post date; Hidden activities are not shown; Hidden grades (and 'hidden until' grades) as set in the gradebook don't show; Non-released grades don't show; Workshops only show feedback when they are closed; Moodle Assignments that have a workflow enabled don't show grades before they are finalised.

    Hi Jessica, I'm having some issues with MyFeedback (Moodle version 3.5). I can't get feedback from the current year to show. I have given feedback to my test student account but i cannot see the feedback in My Feedback on either account. I can see it on the actual assignment though. Any ideas of what i should check?

    Best wishes

    Sam

    Hi Jessica/Alistair - I'm having an issue that's similar to that of Sam P. We are on moodle 3.6. We installed myfeedback about a month ago. It shows feedback and results (to both staff and students) fine for last academic year's courses. But it doesn't show assessments it for courses created just recently. It *seems* that assessments on courses that existed before we installed myfeedback show OK but not those on courses created since the installation. Is anyone else having this issue? Any suggestions? Thanks, Dave

    Hi,

    Sorry we're not currently able to provide much help with how to set it up in your own institutions but it is working fine in production for us.

    We do have a more recent version running on 3.7 which addresses a few compatibility, gdpr etc issues. We will publish this soon. We are just establishing our processes for doing so for this and any other plugins in the long run.

    Thanks
    Alistair

    Thanks Alistair for the update.

    Just to update everyone, I'm no longer at UCL and so am not maintaining this plugin myself anymore. Happily it sounds like Alistair is in the process of sorting out how to share updates with the wider community though.

    I hope this issue can be resolved soon.

    Best wishes,
    Jess

    This plugin contains some CSS bad practice that really needs to be fixed. In your /styles.css declaration, you have the following lines:

    a {
    color: #005E8D;
    text-decoration: none;
    }

    a, a:visited {
    color: #005E8D;
    }

    Your CSS selectors are not specific enough. Those lines of CSS won't just change the colour of links in this report, they'll change the colour of every link on every moodle page on every Moodle site this plugin is installed on. This affects Bootstrap "btn"-class links, and makes the text unreadable.

    Either change the CSS selectors to something more specific, or remove those lines from your styles.css file.

    Hey Lexy,

    Feel free to submit a Merge Request if you figure out a fix https://github.com/uclmoodle/moodle-report_myfeedback

    We were planning to improve MyFeedback next academic year but not currently not sure if we will with covid affecting our plans.

    Unless a miracle occurs with 3.9, we are going to stick to 3.7 until November, so no compatibility work planned imminently.

    Thanks
    Alistair

    Hi all,

    This is an awesome tool - thank you for developing it! We do have one or two work flow issues though. Is it possible to have the teacher/tutor's name added in next to the feedback report? Also, when a student responds to feedback it takes them to a PHP page saying 'Data inserted successfully' and waits there. This is a little confusing for some as they think that the page will refresh but it doesn't. When you hit the back button, it doesn't appear to have inserted anything, you have to manually refresh the page, then the student's feedback is inserted. Is there a way for a teacher to see the private student notes too?

    We also can't get the teacher feedback section working even when they are assigned roles as teachers on a course. Let me know if there's anything you need me to try to help out. Keep up the good work.

    Is it compatible with 3.9+ version of Moodle?

    There is no 3.9 specific release but our testing of 3.9 has no My feedback related issue. If you do come across anything, do log it.

    We hopefully will get some capacity in early 2021 to improve MyFeedback.

    This looks to be an amazing plugin, but we can't seem to have it working, Trying to test out on Moodle 3.5, with the hope to install and fully operational on our 3.8 production Moodle. I have followed the guidance (i.e. roles) religiously but receiving the following error when we access as both departmental dashboard and teacher dashboard:

    Exception - Class 'core_course_category' not found

    More information about this error

    ×Debug info:
    Error code: generalexceptionmessage
    ×Stack trace:
    line 4471 of /report/myfeedback/lib.php: Error thrown
    line 172 of /report/myfeedback/tutor/mymodules.php: call to report_myfeedback->get_prog_admin_dept_prog()
    line 312 of /report/myfeedback/index.php: call to require_once()

    Also, we can't see at the moment, when staff provide feedback to students, does it have a time and date of feedback provided within the report? This could be useful for departmental admins.

    Hi Ali,

    Sounds like you are on the latest version of the plugin rather than 2.14 which would be appropriate for you version of Moodle - https://moodle.org/plugins/download.php/16975/report_myfeedback_moodle35_2018052900.zip

    Seems like it's related to - https://github.com/uclmoodle/moodle-report_myfeedback/blob/6d523e4ad10746267703fd51bc5d43504fc22293/lib.php#L4462
    We had to do that for our 3.7 upgrade last summer. Still no known defects in 3.9, nor 3.8.

    Thanks
    Alistair

    Hi,

    I just confirmed that "Student A" can access "Student B" grades via MyFeedback plugin (v2.15).

    This plugin is supposed to work this way?

    Using Moodle 3.8.5+
