The Moodle My Feedback report appears in the My Profile > Activity Reports menu and allows students to see an overview of all their grades and feedback for assessment activities such as Moodle Assignments, Turnitin Assignments (v1 & v2), Workshops and Quizzes. It provides their visible grades and a link to their submission and any feedback that has been released to them. Note: anything hidden in the gradebook or on the course will not display.

The report is intended to help students understand the variety of feedback they receive. It can also be used to identify similarities between feedback received from across modules and years to help students see how they can improve their work in future assessments.

See how it's being used at UCL: 

Potential privacy issues

All versions before v2.8.11 contain a bug that reveals grades before the post date on some, but not all, Turnitin assignments. Please update to v2.8.11 to ensure you don't encounter this error. V2.4 of this plugin shows numeric grades regardless of the settings on the course or grade item they represent. Displaying the grade in the format defined within each assessment is implemented in V2.5 (available for moodle V2.8+). Take care with using this plugin as it reveals grades to students, so any changes that you make need to be tested thoroughly to ensure they don't reveal hidden grades. E.g. Turnitin assignment grades are only visible after the post date; Hidden activities are not shown; Hidden grades (and 'hidden until' grades) as set in the gradebook don't show; Non-released grades don't show; Workshops only show feedback when they are closed; Moodle Assignments that have a workflow enabled don't show grades before they are finalised.

    Hi, belated commment, we are using PostgreSql and had some problems with workshop braking the view. We fixed it with :
    report/myfeedback/lib.php -> // Is there any feedback file?
    - $sql = "SELECT DISTINCT max(wa.id) as id, wa.feedbackauthorattachment

    + /* $sql = "SELECT DISTINCT max(wa.id) as id, wa.feedbackauthorattachment */

    + $sql = "SELECT count(wa.feedbackauthorattachment) AS feedbackauthorattachment
    FROM {workshop_assessments} wa
    JOIN {workshop_submissions} ws ON wa.submissionid=ws.id
    AND ws.authorid=? AND ws.id=? and ws.example = 0";

    Haven't tried with the latest version yet.

    Thanks Juha. I'll take a look at this.
    The latest version won't have this resolved yet.
    I'm not familiar with this particular code, but I was wondering if leaving out the DISTINCT max() might mean you end up with a different output? I know at one point we saw duplicates when multiple feedback was left by a tutor. We only wanted to display the latest version. Hence the DISTINCT max() value being returned (I think). Now you are returning a count of another field, I wonder if this will still work the same way. Have you tested it with a tutor or peer having changed the feedback they leave for a student in the workshop? I believe you might end up with duplicates / old feedback showing in the report. What is the error you were receiving before?
    Thank you for contributing.

    Hi Jessica et al,
    Sorry to trouble you. I’m having problems trying to get your MyFeedback plugin to work.
    I’ve installed it on a development server running Moodle 3.5 with the Boost theme. I’ve adjusted the permissions for both students and tutors but I do not see anything in the MyFeedback table (see image - https://imgur.com/a/tYfpHOP ). The gradebook is visible and there are grades and feedback in it and these are visible to students. I suspect the issue is that there are no courses for the current academic year. However, I do not know how to define the current academic year. In the settings page for the plugin I left everything as default., i.e. DB Host – [empty], DB Name– [empty] etc.
    Any ideas where I should start looking for a solution?
    Thanks

    Hi Bob,
    It seems like you aren't enrolled as a tutor on those courses. Site admin access won't give you the adequate permissions to see students' grades and feedback via the report. You need to be enrolled as a tutor on the relevant courses to see the students' grades and feedback for that course. When you do this you will see a new tab called 'My students'. You can see this tab in the screenshots on this page.
    The current year settings are no longer used, since the archiving feature never passed testing, so we don't recommend it for production systems. The report will simply display anything in your current installation that you have permission to see, so you don't need to worry about this. The archive settings were there to point to other Moodle installations for institutions who archive off their courses on a yearly basis, but as I mentioned I would avoid using this.
    I hope this helps. Please let me know if this resolves the issue.

    Thanks Jessica, OK we can rule out the "current year" idea. However, my screenshot was of a student view. That student is enrolled on three courses and has grades and feedback on two assignments on each course. The student role permissions are: report/myfeedback:student - ALLOW. (The student does see the grades and feedback in the Moodle gradebook.)

    The tutor does see all the right tabs according to your screenshots but no data.

    Another thing I should mention is that I reset the roles on our development server to ensure they were 'out of the box'. When I looked for Teacher - gradereport/myfeedbacklink:view it is not there.

    All sorted! My problem ( in case others find themselves in the mess I got into) was that I inadvertently changed the shortname for the editingteacher role.

    This plugin looks brilliant, Jess. I was unaware of it till Aurelie Soulier mentioned it in conversation. Congratulations to you and your developer team!

    When do you envisage a 3.6 release?

    Dear Author of this wonderful plugin,

    Is there any chance that My Feedback will be available for Moodle 3.6? It would be lifesaving smile
    I know the question was already asked, but I am really hoping for an update.

    Have a nice day!

    Hi Jessica, I'm having some issues with MyFeedback (Moodle version 3.5). I can't get feedback from the current year to show. I have given feedback to my test student account but i cannot see the feedback in My Feedback on either account. I can see it on the actual assignment though. Any ideas of what i should check?

    Best wishes

    Hi Jessica/Alistair - I'm having an issue that's similar to that of Sam P. We are on moodle 3.6. We installed myfeedback about a month ago. It shows feedback and results (to both staff and students) fine for last academic year's courses. But it doesn't show assessments it for courses created just recently. It *seems* that assessments on courses that existed before we installed myfeedback show OK but not those on courses created since the installation. Is anyone else having this issue? Any suggestions? Thanks, Dave

    Hi,

    Sorry we're not currently able to provide much help with how to set it up in your own institutions but it is working fine in production for us.

    We do have a more recent version running on 3.7 which addresses a few compatibility, gdpr etc issues. We will publish this soon. We are just establishing our processes for doing so for this and any other plugins in the long run.

    Thanks
    Alistair

    Thanks Alistair for the update.

    Just to update everyone, I'm no longer at UCL and so am not maintaining this plugin myself anymore. Happily it sounds like Alistair is in the process of sorting out how to share updates with the wider community though.

    I hope this issue can be resolved soon.

    Best wishes,
    Jess
