Grading in Moodle | 4/29
Tuesday, April 29, 2014 from 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM (CDT)
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 "Moodle Ovierview" class (2 hours—covers 100% Moodle). After that, you should be set to tackle our more intermediate-level Moodle courses.
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
CENTER FOR INNOVATION
IN TEACHING EXCELLENCE
Standards and Expectations
The following standards and expectations apply
for in-classroom, hybrid, and online courses.
All of us in the CITE always take feedback very seriously—both in the way we teach our workshops, and in the way we conduct our classrooms. We always strive to model effective instructional practices. With this intent, we feel it is important to establish expectations (or what we might refer to on a syllabus as standards and policies).
TIMELINESS AND ATTENDANCE:
Like in any class we offer at Columbia, workshop participants need to arrive on time. Admittance to the workshop may be denied if participants are more than 10 minutes late. We of course prefer that you are 0 minutes late! (If you know ahead of time that you are going to be late because of a prior commitment, please e-mail the instructor directly and we will do our best to accommodate you.)
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 participants, thereby affecting their overall learning and understanding of class material.
Tardiness often causes interruptions and delays when late participant(s) need to get caught up. This not only distracts those already in the room, but hinders class progress and may even affect workshop learning outcomes.
Part-time faculty participants who are more than 10 minutes late or leave more than 10 minutes will not be eligible for any stipend associated with that workshop.
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 or before the workshop begins. Anyone not willing to participate fully in the workshop will not be eligible for the associated stipend and disruptive attendees will be asked to leave.
In addition to attendance and participation, workshop participants are expected to complete all exercises and activities associated with the workshop and to attend all sessions of a multi-week series. Failure to do so will result in the forfeiture of associated stipend and any related certificate or recognition for completion.
