The Gradebook Workshop was held in Long Beach, CA, USA a few weeks ago.
Moodle user and web developer Bob Puffer has posted his notes on the Gradebook Workshop to Moodle.org along with some handy resources to start making sense of what may come of the gradebook in Moodle.
One of the most major changes will be a UCLA modeled grader report with fixed columns and row headers which should greatly improve the usability of a large gradebook (similar to the LAE grader).
Two major changes specified from his survey results:
- Grader report fashioned similar to LAE Grader where item headers and student info columns never leave the screen from UCLA (better than LAE Grader)
- Natural weights allowing aggregation methods to be removed from the Setup (Cats and items) screen, display of natural weights allowing adjustment by teacher.
