Step-by-Step Instructions

  1. Toggle Edit mode on using the option located at the top right of your Moodle paper.

  2. At the top left, select the Paper Setup Wizards tab  to open the drop-down menu.

  3. Select  3: Add Assessment Items.
  4. Select either Assessment for final grade or Assessment for feedback (i.e. not graded), then select Next at the bottom right.
  5. Select the type of assessment item, then at the bottom right select Next.


    If you need assessment items that allow you to enter grades in Moodle, but students do not submit anything via Moodle, you can either select Other item, or select Assignment, then when you edit the assignment Settings untick all permitted student submission types.
  6. Enter the assessment name and edit other details.
  7. Scroll down and then select Next at  the bottom right.

    You can update these settings via the Settings tab of each assessment. However, group submission settings cannot be altered after any students have submitted.
  8. Enter the Assessment item weighting.
  9. Then open the Grade category drop-down menu, then select the relevant Grade category.

    The relative weighting of each assessment item within its Grade category, in combination with the weighting of the category total, determines how much each assessment item contributes to the paper score.
  10. Finally, select Complete at the bottom right of the screen.
