Showing bonus points in the gradebook
by Reinhilde Kircher - Tuesday, 20 August 2019, 4:19 PM

Hello everyone,
I was asked whether it's possible to let students get bonus points every week during the semester, depending on how they solve their tests and to show this in the gradebook more comfortably: when you use the option "Grade to pass" in the "Grade" section of a test, pass grades are highlighted in green in the gradebook and fail grades are highlighted in red. So the information is already there I think, but could we make a sum of all passed tests, or better: a sum of received bonus points in the last column? I'm just starting developing. Could I pitch this topic in the pitching session?
Thank you and many greetings, Reinhilde

That sounds promising to me, Reinhilde!

Maybe this is relevant to your idea, too.

Best, Luca

Maybe we could package together more improvements to the gradebook and/or grading system? Or maybe thats too much for one project jsmile

3 things that are really missing or buggy right now:

The gradebook on a whole looks and feels pretty outdated. It would be great if the interface could be improved (drag & drop ai for elements like the one now used for activity items in the course view, and putting formula and grade settings into the same menu would help...)
