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.

    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

    Any upgrade to Moodle 3.2?

    @Ricardo we will have a 3.2 version but we don't have a timeline yet. If you end up testing the 3.1 version on 3.2, please post results. Thanks!

    We currently updated our moodle to 3.1.3+ and the Grade Me feature no longer seems to be working. As others have reported, teachers are given the "Nothing to Grade smile" however when entering into specific assignments/quizzes there are submissions that are not yet graded. Also, if an assignment is viewed but not graded, it disappears. Was there a fix to this?

    Brittany - one thing to try that worked for me. Create a brand new Editing Teacher role based off of the Editing Teacher Role archtype. Add a test user into this role in a course that currently uses the block. Attempt to see if you can see the empty grade me block with your test user. This worked for me, so I deleted my current teacher role and re-created it using the newly made teacher role. The teacher role we were using was created back on 2.4 (not that that should matter)... but creating the new teacher role (and then setting up the same permissions on it as we had on the old role) worked for us.

    John, thanks for the tip. I had both myself and a colleague try that trick but it didn't seem to work. I've had a few items pop up in my Grade Me Block since trying this, but still not nearly all of them.

    Appears to be a tracker issue open for assignments not showing on Moodle 3.1.x.
    We are experiencing this too so hoping for this bug to be squished rather soon.

    Hi guys, I've just been having some issues with the block not refreshing at all. I'm using moodle 3.1 and I noticed ever since the latest update it no longer removes graded activities from the block. I find myself having to directly go to the plugin -> blocks ->grademe settings to manually refresh each time.

    Also like someone mentioned submitted assignments no longer appear on the grademe block.
