Gradebook viewing tweaks
Do you find it hard to view the Moodle gradebook on a small monitor or if your class list is huge?
You should see a horizontal scrollbar in the Gradebook grading grid below the first assignment column. Make the horizontal scrollbar easier to find by reducing the number of students displayed on the page:
- Go into the course Gradebook.
- From the “Grader report” drop-down menu select "My preferences: Grader report" (last thing on the menu)
- Under General, set “Students per page” to something smaller; I recommend 6 as a start.
- Click on "Save changes".
Try turn editing off on the course homepage before you go into the Gradebook.
Gradebook columns are based on the length of the assignment names. But long descriptive assignment names are better for the students, so I would recommend against shortening them.
Move any blocks to the dock to maximize screen space. (Docking a block changes it from a fat box on your Moodle page, to a skinny tab on the left side of the page.)
Sometimes using a different theme can help. You can set a personal theme in Settings > My profile settings > Edit profile > Preferred theme
