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.

    There is a second problem with the block. If a student submits an assignment as a PDF (which there is no way of preventing) it shows in the block correctly. If a teacher clicks on the red check mark they go to the assignment. But, if they do not grade immediately, it then disappears fro the block. Why are assignments disappearing when they have not been graded - this only happens with PDF files. It was a problem in the past then appeared to be fixed with one of the upgrades but now has mysteriously returned. Can you help me understand how we can fix this? Thanks. Nikki

    Is there anyone maintaining this block that could let me know about the problem with the latest release of version 2.8.0.7? In the last couple of weeks the two old problems seem to have reappeared and it has meant that my teachers are unable to use the block at all.

    1. If a teacher clicks on an assignment and enters a grade and feedback, it saves the feedback and grade to the first student in their list rather than the student they chose to enter feedback for.

    2. If a student uploads a PDF for their assignment and the teacher clicks on the red checkmark in the block for that assignment, it removes the assignment from their list even if they do not save any feedback or a grade. Just viewing the students submission removes it from the block.

    These problems existed previously and were corrected but seem to have come back in the last couple of weeks. I really need to get this resolved or will have to remove the block altogether which my teachers would be very disappointed about. Thanks!!

    Hi Nikki, I've been able to replicate the first part of the issue you reported with 2.8.0.7, and we will be taking a look at these problems in our next development sprint. We should have a fix for these problems soon.

    Hi Nikki, sorry for the delay in finding a solution to the grading problem you outlined. We thought we had a solution to the problem, but it didn't work out. It looks like this may actually be a bug with the single grade marking form for the assign module. We are continuing to work on the problem and hope to have a solution for you soon, in the meantime, teachers should probably be using the multi-grade view which can be reached by clicking on the assignment name in the Grade Me block, and then on the "View/grade all submissions" link under the "Grading summary" on the next page.

    Great plug-in! Minor question: on what basis are the courses/assignments ordered in the list? I can't seem to find much structure in there smile Thanks a lot in advance!

    Hello, we are using version 3.0.0.1 of the plugin and it is really helpful. However, the plugin does not recognize any groups and shows all assignment.

    Teacher is in Group A
    Student is in Group B
    Assignment is configured to use groups

    Nevertheless, the teacher sees the assignments of Student within grademe. Or do we have to take something special into account when using groups?

    Thanks in advance

    @David - in the course settings do you have Groups set to 'separate' and Force Group Mode set to 'yes'?

    We have. We did some investigation by ourself and our current guess is, that the access right ("moodle/site:accessallgroups") might be the problem. If the teacher is allowed to see all groups, the filtering does not work. Not sure if it is a bug (if it's true), but a bit unexpected.

    teachers should not have moodle/site:accessallgroups. In a course context that should only be for Managers.

    Depends on your organizational structure, I guess. Would be nice if this could be mentioned somewhere in the desrciption, since "teachers will only see the assignments submitted by students if they are both members of the same group" is no accurate.

    Thanks for support. smile

    Hi there, we're using Grade Me and love the plugin. Just recently the link on the red tick box is taking the trainer to a different student. For example, it says there is something to grade (red tick) next to the name 'Donald', when clicking the red tick the trainer goes to the student 'Minnie'. Same course and assignment but a different student's submission. What is the best way to fix this?

    @Rebecca, Tyler posted a temporary workaround a month ago a few lines up the page. "... teachers should probably be using the multi-grade view which can be reached by clicking on the assignment name in the Grade Me block, and then on the "View/grade all submissions" link under the "Grading summary" on the next page."

    @Tyler @ Logan - do you have an idea of when you might be able to fix this bug?
    (So I know what to say to our teachers and IT dept)

    Hi Paul, it should be fixed now. I just finished uploading the updated versions of the plugin for Moodle 2.7 to 3.1. There was an under-the-hood change made to the gradebook in 3.0 and 3.1 that broke our linkage to the students needing grading. I've rewritten the management of the students needing marking list for use with the gradebook. This release also includes some coding style fixups to make the code compatible with Moodle's and POET's coding standards, and a performance boost for sites with many quizzes.

    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.
