Moodle Monday – Gradebook Calculation Formulas –

Moodle Monday – Gradebook Calculation Formulas – | Moodling | Scoop.it

Today’s Moodle Monday will be focusing on how you can create a formula in Moodle to calculate a weighted mean of grades. 


As it stands, Moodle automatically assigns a simple weighted mean of grades to every assignment that is added in a Moodle course. (For example: if a module has 2 assignments, each activity will be weighted 50%)


However, if your assignments are not weighted equally (or you have included activities such as quizzes, workshops etc.), it is possible to create a formula in Moodle to calculate a weighted mean of grades. These final course grades can then be made visible to students.


To create formulas (or set grade calculations) in Moodle, follow the pattern of formulas/functions you find in other spreadsheet programmes such as Excel. They all start with an (=) sign and use common mathematical operators and functions.

How to create multiple choice questions in Moodle easily?

How to create multiple choice questions in Moodle easily? | Moodling | Scoop.it
Moodle is often used as an online assessment tool. It is having the world’s most flexible and customizable quiz engine. You can create questions in any format with any scoring/feedback options to meet any specific industry requirements.

To use Moodle as an online assessment tool, you need to create the questions. Creating questions in Moodle using the standard web interface can be quite tedious and time taking process. However, Moodle supports many different formats for importing questions from different proprietory formats and text files.

In one of the earlier post, I have shown how to create large number of questions using the GIFT format. GIFT format can be used to create different types of questions easily using text file. However, it comes with its own learning curve.

Have you heard of Learn Moodle?

It’s a free, four-week MOOC run by Moodle HQ, designed for anybody who wants to use the Moodle learning platform. We also run the MOOCs twice a year, after every major Moodle release.

Our Learn Moodle 3.4 MOOC Basics is starting on 8 January 2018 and recently we talked to Mary Cooch, our Community Educator and Elizabeth Dalton, our Research Analyst, to tell us what’s new for this upcoming MOOC.

Easily create a Venn diagram drag and drop activity in Moodle

Easily create a Venn diagram drag and drop activity in Moodle | Moodling | Scoop.it
There is an excellent plugin for the Moodle VLE called ‘Drag and Drop Markers‘ which allows someone to create quiz questions, where the learners have to drag and drop markers onto an uploaded image. This can be used to name parts of an image (e.g. bones in the skeleton, or geological features of a glacier), or to create effective categorisation questions. One of my favourite question types, is where the learners take pieces of information, and categorise these by placing them in the correct position on a Venn diagram.

To create this from scratch, would be extremely time consuming, so to make my life easier, I have used PowerPoint to create templates for myself, meaning that I can now create these questions in a matter of minutes, rather than hours, and I will release these to the wider community over the coming days and weeks (as I get time to tidy them up etc.) The first such template for release, is for a 3 circle Venn diagram categorisation activity.
