Using the Moodle Wizards

The Moodle wizards are the recommended tools for setting up your gradebook and assessments from scratch. They are designed to be used in order, i.e. use:

  • Wizard 2 to create your gradebook category structure, then
  • Add assessments with Wizard 3, and finally
  • Review the gradebook with Wizard 4.

Paper Outlines pilot stage

To ensure that students are able to see important information about their assessments, please include the following details in the names of gradebook categories and assessment items. Please also include this information in the How this paper will be taught section of Wizard 5. Add Paper Information.

Gradebook categories:

  • The category weighting, e.g.: rather than naming a category just Essays, call it Essays (40%)
  • The category calculation if you are taking the best of each student's assessment results in a category, or students don't need to do all the assessments, e.g.: rather than just Quizzes, name it Quizzes (20%, best 3 of 5).

Assessment items:

  • The assessment weight
  • If compulsory (i.e. students who do not attempt the assessment will fail the paper), include the word compulsory.

If your papers are metapapers or include extra credit assessments, please contact Te Puna Ako (Cettl) or drop in to an AMA session for the latest advice.
