## Moodle Ranking block repository

### VERSION 2

#### If you like the block ranking please donate, help me to have more time to continue working on this project. This block is and will remain free, but your donation allows me to continue the development, and any amount is greatly appreciated.

This block improves gamefication into the moodle plataform.

This new version is more simpler and easy to use, but, with more visual.

The plugin works listening moodle events, so now, the points are added in real time.

The ranking works with the activity completion tracking, so you need to enable that and configure the criterias for all activities you want to monitor. The plugin only add points to activities with completion criterias. The method to add points remains the same.

There are different ways to gain points.

For example:

• If a student completes a html page the ranking adds 2 points.
• If a student completes an assignment and it is ended only when the student receive a grade. The ranking add 2 points plus the grade points to the student. You can configure the default points in the block configuraion.

NOTE: All the activities that needs grade to be finished will add the activity points (default 2) more the activity grade. For example: If the course has one assignment and it's configured to be completed only after the grade is received by the student and let's say a random student received by the end of the assignment 10(ten) as his grade. In this case that student will obtain 12(twelve) points, the 2(two pre-configured) from finishing the activity plus 10(ten) from his grade.

This only occurs with activities that have grades. ex: foruns, assignments, lessons, etc...

### For Moodle version 3.2+

With the new chart api in moodle version 3.2 i added some graphs to see the groups performance. Enjoy and feel free to send me your feedback.

### Update Notes

• Removed cron dependency
• Added a tiny report with top 100 students in general ranking
• Added filter the tiny report by groups (the course group mode needs to be "separeted groups" or "visible groups")
• Now you don't need configure the course completion tracking, only the activities completion criterias. Again, the plugin only monitors the activities with completion criteria
• The table ranking_cmc_mirror was removed.

### Installation

First way

• Clone this repository into the folder blocks.
• Access the notification area in moodle and install

Second way

• Extract the content
• Put the folder into the folder blocks of your moodle
• Access the notification area in moodle and install

### Post instalation

After you have installed the block you just add it into the moodle course.

The ranking block works together with the activity completion, so you need to enable that and configure the criterias for all activities you want to monitor. The ranking block monitors these activities and add points to the students based on accomplishing the activities.

### Enabling completion tracking

• Turn on the item "Enable completion tracking"
• Inside the course go to: Course administration / Edit settings
• In the section Completion tracking set "Completion tracking" to yes
• Save

Is it possible separate the rank list by groups?
I have two groups (group1 and group2) in group1 there is one student and in group2 another one.
If I click on "See full ranking" as a student I see all the users ranking but i want to see only my groups!

Hi

I'd find a couple of typos in lang-file:
$stirng['graph_access_deny']$stirng['graph_no_groups']

Is this working?
$enablemultipleattempts =$DB->get_record( 'config_plugins'...

Thanks
MJ
