Whittier College Moodle will be upgrading to 1.9.9 later this week. Included in this upgrade are a number of big changes to the Moodle gradebook from the 1.9.5 release.

Click here for a visual peek at the changes.

Among the changes:

  • The student name column is now sticky (which means you can still see the students name as you scroll to the right to look at additional assignments).
  • The categories page has been re-organized and color coded to make things easier to understand.
  • The Gradebooks drop-down navigation menu can now be supplemented by tabbed navigation.

We'll post when the upgrade occurs. Over the next few weeks, and into the Fall semester, we'll run workshops in the Alcove to help you understand the new gradebook. We'll have further workshops to cover the Attendance module (successfully tested in the spring) and the Questionnaire activity.
