Moodle 2.2

Moodle 2.2

  • Moodle 2.2
    • Beta version scheduled for release February 2010.
    • Moodle estimates several months of testing before released as stable version.
    • That timeline wouldn't give us much time to test in our environment prior to Fall 2010.
    • So, it may be Summer 2011 before we implement it.

Rubric in moodle 2.2

Paola's note

  • Rubric is not displaying a priori (at the beginning of assignment). This issue was reported in moodle tracker and it seems like they are working on it.
  • Rubrics can be saved as templates and then be used in the course:
  1. Log in as a manager (or other user with moodle/grade:sharegradingforms capability) and create an assignment.
  2. In the assignment settings set rubric as the grading method.
  3. In Settings > Assignment administration > Advanced grading select 'Define new grading form from scratch'.
  4. Define the grading form then click the button 'Save rubric and make it ready'.
  5. Click the button 'publish grading form as template'.
  6. Log out then log in as a teacher and create an assignment.
  7. In the assignment settings set rubric as the grading method.
  8. In Settings > Assignment administration > Advanced grading select 'Create new grading form from a template'.
  9. Find the shared template created by the manager and click the 'Use this template' button.
  10. Check that the rubric is listed as ready for use on the advanced grading page.

NOTE: When the assignment is created in order to edit the rubric inmmeditally it is necessary to hit "save and display". If "save and return to course" is chosen then it is necessary to use the navigation bar to edit the setting of the rubric.
