Grade reports: LAE Grader Report

Maintained by Picture of Bob Puffer Bob Puffer
Alternative to Grader report that scrolls vertically and horizontally without losing student columns or grade item header rows. Lot of additional enhancements.
Moodle 2.3, 2.4, 2.5, 2.6

NOTE: LAE stands for Liberal Arts Edition, a repackaged version of Moodle provided by CLAMP (Collaborative Liberal Arts Moodle Project). The LAE User and LAE Grader are packaged with the LAE version of Moodle but can be installed separately with the dependencies as noted below.

Layout Differences From Grader Report

LAE Grader report in non-editing mode
  • Grade item and category headers are all on one line, not nested. LAEgrader does not collapse or expand categories.
  • LAEgrader allows wrapping of grade item and grade category names (at approximately 30 characters) to avoid excessively wide reports
  • All items (including the category column) included in a category are color-coded the same to group them together, alternately orange/blue
  • Items not contained in a category have a background of white as does the Course Total.
  • Hidden items and categories are gray.
  • Grades scroll both horizontally and vertically without losing view of the students column or the grade item header rows. This is the biggest difference between the LAE and core gradebooks. It negates the need for mouseover descriptions of which student and which item on which you're currently working.
  • Rows added such as 'range' or 'average' are placed at the top (instead of the bottom) and are frozen along with the grade item titles row so the user never loses sight of them.
  • Has a 'Clear overrides' button at each column header
  • Doesn't allow for editing the values for category or course items.
  • Has an 'Export to csv' button right on the report for a quick export of all items along with a weights row, a maximum points row, and extra column after every category and course total for making calculations.



This plugin is part of set LAE Grade Reports.

    This has been corrected, thanks for pointing it out. What is your organization? Do you have a lang pack you'd like to share?

    Reimplemented aggregate position so totals can come first or last (thanks to Emma Richardson)

    Overall, LAE is a vast improvement over the core grader report, but since installing it I'm having a weird issue that the core report no longer calculates the total for the course correctly. All of the individual assignment scores show up with the right values, but the overall grade is not updating.

    Hi Rob, appreciate your remarks. I assure you LAE Grader makes absolutely no changes to values in the tables. All calcs are on the fly. Can you post a screencap of your grader report course total area?

    Hi Bob, Thanks for the great grader report.
    I cloned the git repo for the install and was surprised it was 257MB. Do you know why the GitHub repo is so large for this plugin?

    I have installed the LAE GRADE REPORT version 2.6 in Moodle 2.6.2 but I do not set header items, or the row of names of students, only a horizontal scroll appears across the qualifier me. Do I need to configure or install something for it to work properly the option of horizontal and vertical scroll?

    Can you send me a screenshot? My email is in my profile. Also, what browser are you using? LAE Grader support Chrome, Firefox and Safari, not IE.

    Likely to work, discontinued dev work in favor of 2.8 core gradebook

    Hi, thank you to the marvelous plugin developed. I wonder is there any plan to update it to 2.9?

    The functionality of the reports were largely adopted by the core 2.8 and 2.9 gradebook
