    Hey John, if I understand correctly, it sounds like what you're looking for is a mix between Checklist and Marking Guide ( I think the intended use case would actually be a new advanced grading method with features of each. Keep in mind that you can disable showing the score to the student, and you can also utilize grade overrides in the Gradebook, although a new plugin would probably be the most ideal.

    Hi Kris,

    Will this plugin work on a Moodle 2.5.2 installation?

    Version 2.5 of Checklist has been uploaded to the plugins repository. In addition, we've posted the plugin code in Github, which we will be updating in the future prior to availability in the Plugins Repository. Please check there first for updates to new Core versions.

    Will this plugin work for groups of students peer-assessing the other members of the group?
    It seems that it would be quite appropriate for "peer" assessment.
    Thank you for any suggestions.

    Hi Byron, the Checklist grading form is just that - a grading form. In order to support peer review, the activity must support it. The workshop module supports peer review, but not advanced grading method. The assignment module supports advanced grading methods, but not peer review. Unfortunately, you will need to request that one (or both) of these features be implemented in the corresponding Moodle activities. For example, you could vote on to implement advanced grading methods in Workshop.

    I really like this advanced grading method, and use it a lot. What i would like to know is, is it possible to be able to download the checklist results eg., to excel? ATM i am having to go and manually copy the checklist and group totals which is not ideal. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Is this something that is being considered for future versions? If so, i will vote for it. Thanks again for developing this tool. I will await your response. Cheers

    @Leo - what you're asking for sounds like great functionality, but it would be outside of the control of the Advanced Grading plugin itself, especially if the intention is to export results for all users. It is likely that a change would either need to be made to modules, specifically Assignment since that is the only module that currently supports advanced grading methods, or within one of the Advanced Grading method's base classes. Regardless, you should post the idea in or in the Moodle forums.

    Hi Is it possible to use the outcomes as the checklist for the criteria

    Robert - Currently no. Checklist items are manually created, and the content of the description is static. However, Rubrics are tied to Outcomes in the new version of that system which has been proposed by Moodlerooms and has been under consideration by Moodle for inclusion into Core.

    Just discovered that the cross_red_big and cross_red_small pictures used for deleting items and groups when editing a checklist are missing from the /pix/i folder since Moodle 2.6. I have opened a tracker issue.

    Issue CONTRIB-5521 - cross_red_big and cross_red_small pictures are missing from /pix/i folder.
