Faculty: Wrapping up your semester in Moodle

With the end of the Spring term only a few weeks away, it’s a good time to ensure that your gradebook in Moodle is set up the way you need it, that your students can see how they are doing in the class, and that you are prepared to move your course from “In Progress” to “Past.” We have provided a checklist for you:

  1. Are all of your gradebook items inside a category? Items floating outside your categories may be calculated incorrectly. See Gradebook Setup for Faculty for more

  2. Are all of your gradebook items set to a weight other than zero if you want them to be included in the grade calculations? See Gradebook Setup for Faculty for more

  3. Have you changed the weight to zero for those items you do not want included in the grade calculations? See Gradebook Setup for Faculty for more

  4. Have you entered zeros for all work that has not been submitted by students? (blank/empty grades are not counted against their grades until a zero is inputted) See Editing Grades for Faculty for more

  5. Have you unhidden your gradebook so that students can access their grades and check their progress? See Hiding / Unhiding Gradebook - Faculty for more

  6. Is there an end date for your course and is it correct? This will move your course from the “In-Progress” status to “Past” making it easy to keep courses organized on people’s dashboards. To check/edit this date navigate to Edit Settings and find the “Course end date.” Make any necessary changes and be sure to scroll down and click save. 

Note: Moodle is not CCA's academic system of record, so all official grade submissions should be made through Workday. See Submit Grades Step by Step Guide for details.
