Save time

UPDATE – Summer 2016: Elon has changed Moodle providers and joule Grader is no longer available at Elon.

Providing feedback and grading assignments can be very time consuming. Luckily, Moodle has a new feature that makes grading more efficient. The joule Grader puts all student submissions in one place making it easier for professors to grade one assignment and quickly move to the next assignment. 

Benefits of joule Grader

  • Easily navigate between student assignments with fewer clicks
  • View all the discussion board posts for each student on one screen
  • View submitted assignments, leave feedback and grade the assignment from one screen
  • View PDF documents directly in joule Grader without downloading the file
  • Integrate with a Moodle rubric so students can see where they excelled and where there is room for improvement

Read the documentation from Moodlerooms for more details on joule Grader.

Access joule Grader

To access the joule Grader, click on joule Grader on the left of the screen, under Settings/Course administration.

Other ways to save time grading in Moodle

In case you were wondering, joule is the name Moodlerooms, Elon’s Moodle provider, has given this feature. If you ask us, Grader would have been just fine.
