Marking Manager Screenshot

At the site level (front page) the Marking Manager block lists all Assignments, Forums and Quizzes that require grading. At the course level, the Marking Manager has 2 parts:

Block: provides quick overview of the number of Assignments, Quizzes and Forums with the following status:

  • Requires Grading
  • Graded 
  • Not Submitted

Clicking on these status links  will open the marking Interface. The block also contains links to a custom Progress Report (see screenshot below). At the bottom part of the block, a status report shows the number of students that:

  • have not logged in for x days
  • not submitted actities for x days
  • have a overall grade less than x percent

Marking Interface: allows teachers to grade Assignments, Quizzes and Forums within a single interface. This interface consists of a left section, where activites are selected, and and right section, where activties are graded. See screen shots below for more info.



This plugin is part of set NED.

    Hello Fernando,

    Hope you are doing good.
    I am using block "FN Marking". It is good plugin which meet our requirement.
    We are using moodle 3.1 and FN Markeing 2.9 version. We are facing page load problem with this plugin.
    I have attached two screen shots at:

    One is for course page and another one is for FN Marketing block.
    FN Marketing take almost 23 Second each time to load page.

    We have already Opcache enabled on server. still it take too much time. Can you please help me out on this?

    My apologies for the delay in updating this block. . We're currently working on a solution for the long page load on the front page. On this issue, we've decided to add the option of updating the block during the Moodle cron job, instead of every page load. More info to come.

    Hello. Looks like a useful plugin, however for me it doesn't work with grading workflow. Although an assignment is assigned to a specific grader, any tutor can mark it through the marking manager block. Is that a known issue or is there a way to avoid this? Thanks

    This is a really useful block. Is there any discussion or future plans to incorporate Advanced Forums to populate as a required grading item?

    Hi Jacob, currently there is no plan to incorporate Advanced Forums. As with all NED plugins, new features are added as funding becomes available. You can see a list of requested features here:

    Feel free to contribute smile

    Any plans to realease a working version for Moodle 3.0 sometime soon? We're using this plugin in our company, so any updates would be much appreciated.

    Most excellent plugin and the teachers are really excited about it, once we can get it working properly!

    Our problem is that the Progress Report page is not showing all of the submitted assignments from students for some reason. It shows some but not others, and one particular assignment is not showing any submissions at all! But when I go into the Gradebook, we can see that there are submissions to this assignment....
    I can't see any difference between the assignment settings that might affect why some and not others are showing, nor in the Marking Manager settings either sad

    Any ideas on what I need to do to sort these issues out?

    Hard to diagnose the problem without more info. Could you check to see if the assignment has a grade override? We are working on a fix to accommodate assignments with grade overrides (should be ready sometime next week) but, if this is the problem, here's a quick work-around:

    Otherwise, feel free to provide more info (including the versions of Moodle, plugin and PHP along with database type). I'd happy to take a quick look at your site, if you can PM me with login details.

    Fernando, we are experiencing the same issue that Bobby Demers is describing. Something interesting is that when we click on "Student list" (in the block), the response is: "No participants found for this course" Could this be linked to the fact that the block is not showing the items that need to be graded?
    An extra piece of information is that we use completion tracking heavily, so all of these assignments, forums, have completion tracking enabled; usually to be checked as completed once the teachers grades them.
    Please let us know what you find out about this issue, we are using Moodle Moodle 3.1.2 (Build: 20160912). If you need more details about our setup, just let me know.

    Thank you!

    Hi Sam, would it be possible to get access to your site so that I can take a look?

    Hi Fernando, first of all thank you so much for this plugin. it has saved our life (as teacher).

    I just upgrade my Moodle to version 3.2 and it seems to be working perfectly. I haven't had any issues, neither my trainers here.

    Just one thing, when I add the plugin on the dashboard and it brings all pending marking of my courses, it takes a little time to load. Would you have any tips for that? Or it could be my server?


    Thanks mate!
