Grading methods: Learning Analytics Enriched Rubric

Maintained by Picture of John Dimopoulos John Dimopoulos
The Learning Analytics Enriched Rubric (LA e-Rubric) is an advanced grading method used for criteria-based assessment.

The Learning Analytics Enriched Rubric (LA e-Rubric) is an advanced grading method used for criteria-based assessment. As a rubric, it consists of a set of criteria. For each criterion, several descriptive levels are provided. A numerical grade is assigned to each of these levels.

An enriched rubric contains some criteria and related grading levels that are associated to data from the analysis of learners’ interaction and learning behavior in a Moodle course, such as number of post messages, times of accessing learning material, assignments grades and so on.

Using learning analytics from log data that concern collaborative interactions, past grading performance and inquiries of course resources, the LA e-Rubric can automatically calculate the score of the various levels per criterion. The total rubric score is calculated as a sum of the scores per each criterion.

    Not working in Moodle2.6, that is OK for now.
    But can't uninstall it, no 'uninstall' link in Plugin overview page.
    Removed the file from server, got:
    erubric Missing from disk!
    Need help on how to uninstall it properly.

    Thank you for the remark, the plugin will be updated soon, and will be further tested on the new Moodle version.

    Until the new plugin version is released, you could manually remove the plugin by following these steps:

    1. Delete the plugin directory 'erubric' from moodle/grade/grading/form/ from your server files,

    2. Delete the database tables starting with '_gradingform_erubric_*'

    3. Delete from your database table '_config_plugins' any record where plugin = 'gradingform_erubric'

    Then you will erase the plugin from your moodle site without problems.

    Please let me know if there is something else I can do to help.

    Thank you again for your remarks,

    The new version fully compatible with Moodle 2.6 will probably be released this summer (sometime in August 2014)...

    Hello Julie, smile

    If everything goes as planed, there maybe a new version in the next few months. There is an amount of significant updates regarding this plugin, that must be designed, implemented and tested properly so we will need more time. The logging system in Moodle has changed since 2.6+, so there are many aspects to consider.

    Greetings smile

    Hello John : I have a place to have tried this wonderful plugin for my PhD dissertation , but the problem is that the installation is Moodle 3.0, and the plugin doesn`t work on it. Is there a compatible version ?

    Dear John: You right! In this version the plugin works fine, however I'm trying to use it in verison 3.1 moodle, but does not work. Not even the assessment rubric appears. Do you plan to upgrade to version 3.1? It would be very helpful for me.

    Hello again Guillermo, smile

    I just checked the plugin on the last version (Moodle 3.1.2+) and there are significant changes in the system core grading procedure. thoughtful

    I will look these up as soon as I can and I will try to make the necessary changes for a new version of this plugin. wink

    I can't tell you yet when it would be ready.... mixed Meanwhile use the previous version of Moodle, if you can...

    Cheers tongueout

    Thanks John. I will apply your suggestion. Although it will be great to have the updated version of your great plugin. Unfortunately my institution always updates the LMS to its latest version.

    Thanks for your comments and I will be pending.
