Grading in Moodle | 11/20
Wednesday, November 20, 2013 from 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM (CST)
This workshop provides an overview of the Moodle Gradebook. We cover how to grade online and offline assignments and activities, including FORUMS, Tests and Glossaries. We also look at how to weight grades using categories and other advanced grading features.
Interested in this workshop? Great! We just want to make sure you're ready to go. This workshop expects that all participants are familiar with:
• Moodle site access
• Basic Moodle fundamentals (creating assignments, links, forums, files, etc.)
• Proper Moodle organization techniques
• Basic internet browser navigation techniques
If you're unsure about your familiarity in these areas, we strongly recommend that you first take our "Jumpstart Your Online Teaching and Learning" class (1.5 hours—covers both Moodle and Lynda.com), or our "Moodle Ovierview" class (2 hours—covers 100% Moodle). After that, you should be set to tackle our more intermediate-level Moodle courses. You may also benefit by taking our "Jumpstart Your Tech" class for additional Mac-based technical instruction.
To ensure that participants get the most from our programs, the CiTE now categorizes our offerings by designating the levels of technological knowledge and skill for which the program has been designed.
This workshop has been designated as:
Experienced: Designed for individuals who have a working knowledge of the technology that will be used in the session and want to learn to apply it better
CiTE Standards & Expectations
Timeliness and attendance:
Workshop participants need to arrive on time. Admittance to the workshop may be denied if participants are more than 15 minutes late. We of course prefer that you 0 minutes late!
Why would we turn you away from a free faculty workshop, when we realize and appreciate that you have so much else going on? A couple of reasons:
Tardiness often causes unwanted distractions for the rest of the workshop attendees, thereby affecting their overall enjoyment and understanding of class material.
Tardiness often causes a situation where the class needs to totally “stop” in order to get the late participant(s) caught up. This is not only a distraction to all else in the room, but it hinders class progress and may even affect workshop learning outcomes.
**Part-time faculty participants who are more than 15 minutes late or leave more than 15 minutes early may be denied the workshop stipend.**
Distracting (web and mobile-based) activities:
Workshop participants must only work on workshop content during the duration of the workshop. We know it’s tempting to surf the web, check email, or even take care of personal business while you’re in our classroom. However, some workshop participants have been abusing personal web-surfing time—something their peers have said is extremely distracting. Please limit personal web-surfing and email-checking to the break (we promise we’ll give you one!) If you are repeatedly observed breaking this protocol, we will likely ask you to leave the workshop.
