Shows a teacher all of the assignments and manual quiz questions (essays and file responses) that have been submitted, but not graded. The block is configured to work with groups that is, teachers will only see the assignments submitted by students if they are both members of the same group. You'll have to let me know if it works with courses that don't use groups at all. You can install the block on the Front Page and it will show ungraded assignments for ALL courses, and if you put the block on a course page it will only show the ungraded assignments for that course.

    We've released new versions of Grade Me for Moodle 2.7-3.1 that have a small, but important, bug fix that should prevent Grade Me from becoming confused and linking to the wrong quiz attempts when there are quiz attempts to be marked.

    Thanks! for a great plugin. I am wondering if the following is a bug.
    As is mentioned on previous post. "teachers will only see the assignments submitted by students if they are both members of the same group".
    We have check all the settings
    - course settings set to 'separate' and Force Group Mode set to 'yes'
    - Assignment setting set to "separate groups"
    - Add instructor to their group
    The result is that all instructors enroll on the course can see the same all assignments on the "grade me" block They do not need to be in a group, they see the assignments for all the groups on that course. Also I add an instructor to the course and don't put him on any group - this one also can view all assignments on the grade me block.

    Is this a bug or it is how the plugin supposed to work? - Thanks

    I've just noticed that using the new 3.1.0.1 version of Grade Me, that if I click on a checkmark in the Grade Me block to go grade a student, then exit the grading page without actually giving a grade, that student is no longer listed in the Grade Me block as needing to be graded. Is this a bug, or is it expected behavior?

    I recently installed Grade Me in Moodle 3.1. I tested two students to submit their assignment unfortunately there are no notifications shown in Grade Me block. It stays as "Nothing to grade!"

    We are using Grade Me in Moodle 2.8 and just updated to the latest version of Grade Me for 2.8 (2.8.0.9 version 2014111010) today. When we click on the red checkmark beside a name, the assignment for the first student (by the default sort) in the class is opened, not the assignment for the student who had the red checkmark showing beside their name.

    @Chris - can you update to 2.8.0.10 and re-test?

    Hi Grade Me team,

    Our Institute is running Moodle 2.3 (with the vision to move to 3.1 very soon) with your Grade Me block installed (version 2014010708). It is used in one course where it contains many assignment uploads. However, the Grade Me module does not accurately count the number of tasks/assignments that require marking. The Grade Me block is always counting higher than the "Needs Grading" field in the Grading Summary.

    For Example: Grade Me on the course page counts 10 "Intro CAD - Saw Blade Upload" assignments need to be marked. I open the link to those assignments, where the Grading Summary table shows that there are 95 participants, 0 drafts, 35submissions and only 2 needs grading.
    Clicking on the "View/grade all submissions" link and filtering the assignments by status shows that the assignments are of one of 3 statuses: Submitted and Graded (many) , Reopened (5) and not submitted (many). This issue does not occur for every assignment within the course.

    I have dived into the Grade Me module settings and cannot find anything on what could affect the count.

    Any help is much appreciated smile

    Thanks for the recent updates to fix the block. I noticed that since the October 4th update there seems to be one small thing not quite right.

    If there are no items to grade, the block used to tell teachers "nothing to grade" with a smiley face. However, this is no longer happening. If there are no items the block does not appear at all. It still appears perfectly with the "nothign to grade" message for admin and managers. But it disappears for teachers and non-editing teachers. My teachers are finding this really confusing since they think the block has disappeared altogether. Could we have it come back for teachers when there are no items outstanding? O let me know where in the code I should make a change to get it to appear again - I suspect it is to do with the role of the teacher not being recognized as one that can see the block when there is nothing to grade but I cannot figure out where to change that. Thanks!

    Hi Grade me Team,

    How can I upgrade the grade me block? Do i need to uninstall the block and reinstall?

    @simon - You shouldn't have to uninstall and reinstall. This plugin is upgradeable using the standard Moodle plugin upgrade process.

    @Edmund - Is your site cron running? Some items may require the cron to run before they show up in the block.

    Hello. Looks like a nice plugin, however for me it doesn't work with grading workflow. Although an assignment is assigned to a specific grader, it is shown as waiting for grading to ANY tutor in the grade me block. And when non-assigned grader tries to access is, there is an error. Is that a known issue or is there a way to avoid this? Thanks

    @Pascal - it sounds like you don't have groups set up in your course. We have multiple teachers in each course with their own group of students. Each teacher only sees the things they need to grade - they do not see what other people need to grade.
    In the course settings we have 'Group Mode: Separate groups'; 'Force Group Mode: Yes'

    @Paul - Thanks for your answer. I have set groups in my test course but still a teacher sees all submissions. If the teacher then tries to garde a submission (no matter if from his group or another group) there is this error: "The grade changes were NOT saved, as it was not possible to determine which submission they were for." Navigating through the assignment instead of grade me the grading works normal. Thanks, Pascal
