Faculty: Wrapping up your Spring 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 the following checklist for you. 

Gradebooks

 All gradebook items are inside categories.
Items floating outside your categories may be calculated incorrectly. See Gradebook Setup for Faculty for more. 

 If counted towards the final grades, gradebook items are weighted other than “0."
See Assign Weights to Grade Categories and Grade items for more. 

 If not counted towards the final grades, gradebook items have a weight of "0."
See Assign Weights to Grade Categories and Grade items for more. 

 Entered "0"s for all work that has not been submitted by students.
Blank or empty grades are not counted against a student's grade until a zero is inputted. See Editing Grades for Faculty for more. 

 Unhidden your gradebook so that students can access their grades and check their progress.
See Hiding / Unhiding Gradebook for more. 

If you need help with Gradebook setup, feel free to schedule a one-on-one consultation with Ming.

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.

Course End Dates

 The course end date and time is correct.
This will move your course from the “In-Progress” status to “Past” making it easy to keep courses organized on the Moodle dashboard. Incorrect dates could lead to confusion and disruptions to your class. See Editing Your Course Date for more.
