Accommodations for Students on Moodle Quizzes

When you create a Moodle Quiz, sometimes you will need to change the settings of the quiz for an individual student. 

This could be because the student is given the accommodation of extra time on quizzes, or because the student needs to take it a different day due to prior commitments discussed with you.

Getting Started with the Moodle Gradebook

Below are some helpful resources from other schools on getting started with the Moodle gradebook.

Because these resources are from other schools, informative screenshots may look slightly different, but the information should still be relevant and helpful.

This resource from the University of Wisconsin walks you through setting up the gradebook, adding and editing categories, and grading.

What to do when a Moodle Backup fails

Occasionally, the Moodle backup process for a course will not complete. The process will appear to take forever, and after waiting many minutes, you will be greeted with a screen proclaiming a "504 Gateway Timeout" or the like.

Retaining Moodle Content from the 2006-11 Archive

Based on our policy of retaining Moodle sites for four years from the date of their creation, the 2006-11 Moodle archive (http://moodlearchive.kenyon.edu/2006-11/)  will be taken down in November, 2014.

Kenyon's Moodle Retention Policy

Kenyon stores only the current year’s Moodle pages at https://moodle.kenyon.edu. Each summer, a fresh Moodle server is installed at moodle.kenyon.edu, and the upcoming fall semester courses are loaded onto it. The previous year’s Moodle server is renamed moodlearchive.kenyon.edu/yyyy-yy/ . This practice began in July 2011.

Moodle Assignments, Due Dates, and Cutoff Dates

Moodle has introduced a new setting which affects the behavior of the Assignment module. Along with the Due Date field, there is now a setting for the Cut-off Date. The Cut-off Date replaces and expands the old "Prevent Late Submissions" field, which was a yes or no decision.
