Edwiser RapidGrader – For An Upgraded Moodle Grading Experience

Edwiser RapidGrader – For An Upgraded Moodle Grading Experience
June 18, 2019 Adarsh Singh

In one of my previous blog posts, I had talked about how Moodle is a more preferred LMS choice for schools, universities as well as companies. More importantly, I had covered certain problems teachers have with Moodle Grading.

For those of you who missed it, not to worry! I would be doing a quick recap of just the problems, in the below section.

However, if you wish to read the whole article, you can do that here.


What’s Wrong with Grading in Moodle

#1 Moodle has a Non-intuitive Grading Layout

As a result, teachers first need to understand how grading works in Moodle, and only then they can start grading!

#2 The Process of Grading in Moodle is a Rough Ride

Grading each question per student needs a new tab to be opened. A journey of clicks, clicks and more clicks. Ugh!

#3 Grading Subjective Questions is a Challenge

Most quizzes have a higher number of objective questions that can be graded automatically. But what follows is the painful part – grading the fewer-in-number subjective questions by choosing each student, one by one.

#4 Feedback, What’s that?

Owing to the poor user interface and complexity in grading, teachers feel drained out. As a result, they don’t actively indulge in sharing constructive feedback with their students.

#5 All of this leads to STRESS!

Grading is an essential element of any learning process. It helps the teacher, as well as the students, understand the areas they need to improve in.


As you can very well see, such problems can end up taking a toll on the teacher’s efficiency. More importantly, it could also potentially damage the student-teacher relationship.

“How”, you might wonder.

All of the above problems mean that the teachers lack the necessary motivation to share feedback. Gradually, the students start feeling the absence of a connection with their teachers, and either lose interest or worse – they drop out!

Further, all of this also leads to an absence of critical thinking amongst their students.

    This sounds like a very good initiative for grading. My question stems from the grade history, does this permanently store the students grades even after they are unenrolled from a course? to allow them to view there grades even after the closing of a semester.

      Edwiser RapidGrader provides an easy to use grading tool and when it comes to storing the grades it follows the same steps as in Moodle.
      I believe by default, grades of a students who are unenrolled from a course are continued to be stored in Moodle and this should work for you.
