The Homework Block streamlines the process of managing homework activities by simplifying the way teachers set, track and mark their student’s homework. Homework Block not only provides benefits to teachers but also the students, school and parents too. 

For Teachers

  • Plan and set homework ahead of time and upload all supporting documents that students will require to complete the homework 
  • See submissions which require marking and which Homeworks are due in directly from the block. 
  • Save time by generating comprehensive homework reports instantly, allowing you to monitor and understand both class and individual student’s progress
  • View an overview report of grades for the group as a whole, which can be downloaded as a XLS or CSV file 
  • Drill down by student to view the submission status, duration, feedback and grade of homework
  • Homework set for classes can be viewed as a summary list. For users with an Overnet Data subscription, homework can be viewed as a colour-coded timetable to enable quick identification of classes which have homework set, no homework or homework due

For Schools

  • Staff usage reports can be viewed to ensure that all staff are using the Homework Block
  • Provides evidence of homework setting and feedback for school inspections

For Students

  • With all homework deadlines, details and supporting documents online, there’ll be no more missed or forgotten homework.
  • Homework submitted in Moodle is automatically recorded as done
  • Static homework that needs to be submitted outside of Moodle can be manually recorded as completed

For Parents

  • Can see their child's homework and if it has been completed, any grade or feedback from the teacher.
  • For schools with Overnet Data's EduLink, there is an option to notify parents with an email update when new homework is set.

By upgrading to Overnet Data's Edulink for Moodle, users will be able to automate provisioning of students,  teachers, parents and classes. Plus, benefit from additional functionality including:

  • Integrated parental email communication
  • Achievement and behaviour writeback to your MIS
  • Timetable-based Homework management
  • Homework tracking for parents

    Great work!
    I can't wait to use this block in our Moodle (after the issues are resolved)!
    Thanks a lot!

    Why is this plug-in Homework yet still "Incubated"?

    We don't know Kees... it's been a month since we uploaded a version that addressed David's concerns...

    Thanks guys for fixing the most important issues with database table names and functions naming. Generally, the plugin has still implemented some significant parts in pretty original way, not following the common Moodle code patterns and style. I commented on some of them and their risks in your issues tracker.

    However, these things should not prevent the block from being moved into blocks category, and I just did that move. Good luck with further development of the block.

    Wow..this one looks stupendous..will this plugin help me (a student rather than a teacher) with management of my homework assignments..before I was using things like this one http://yourhomeworkhelp.org/do-my-calculus-homework/ but your plugin looks way more useful and interesting

    this looks good and we're currently testing it. We've not a found a way to edit the homework description though. Is this a feature of this free version, and if so why can't we add to it?

    When you click on the Homework activity name in the block or view all screen, you should see brief details with an 'EDIT HOMEWORK' button - click there. You can also edit the activity from the course it's on in normal Moodle style.

    The description field does not appear to be editable when using the Boost theme.

    I installed it for moodle 3.4 but it does not show up in the add block section...is there any solution or it is not compatible for 3.4 version ..??

    Hi. In adding a new homework and choosing the course, the list includes all old courses that are hidden, is there a way to list only current/visible courses?

    Thinking of using this instead ShowMyHomework from September. If I have the same homework for 7 different groups, all having different hand in dates, can I make one and copy/amend it or do I have to write the details out 7 times?

    Has anyone tried this in modole 3.8?
  • Wed, Sep 9, 2020, 12:29 AM
    Trying this with 3.9 but there seems to be a require.js error which stops you clicking Save. Is anyone else having this issue?
