Uploading the marked assignments, feedback files and the grades into Moodle

The video at the bottom of this page is the third in a three video series showing a workflow for efficiently downloading, marking and uploading a class set of assignments in Moodle 2.3 or higher.

  1. The first video showed downloading the submitted assignments in a single zip file with a grading worksheet.
  2. The second shows grading the assignments using eMarking Assistant.
  3. And the third (this video) shows zipping the marked assignments and any additional feedback files into a single file and uploading this into Moodle and uploading the grading worksheet into the Moodle gradebook.
00:45 Zip all the marked assignments and additional feedback files into a single zip file. It is important that the zip file does not contain any folders and that the first part of each filename is not changed as this is used to determine who will receive the file. In our Moodle the filename is made up of: the student name, the student identifier, the text “_assignsubmission_file_”, followed by the filename that the student will see. You can add anything after the the text and the file will be returned to the correct student. You can also use this to return new files to the student.
1:45 I often put the grading worksheet into the same folder to keep all related items together. The grading worksheet contains one row for each student and the grade and feedback.
2:30 An easy way to zip the files on most Windows computers is to select all the files > right click > then select Send to > Compressed (zipped) folder
 3:00 Go to your Moodle course site and click the Moodle assignment activity to see the summary information for the assignment. Then click View/grade all submissions link at the bottom of the page to see the grid with one row for each student
 3:25 Use the Grading action dropdown menu at the top of the page and select Upload multiple feedback files in a zip to upload the zip file containing the marked assignments. Moodle will then show you a list of feedback files that will be returned and ask you to confirm that it is correct.  The Feedback files column in the assignment grid should now show the feedback files that you have just uploaded.
 4:15 Use the Grading action dropdown menu at the top of the page and select Upload grading worksheet to upload the worksheet containing the grades and the comments. It will show you the grades and the feedback that you have entered and ask you to confirm that it is correct. The Grades column in the assignment grid should now show the grades for the students and the Feedback comments column should show the feedback that you entered into the grading worksheet..
