Checkmark

The Checkmark module (mod/checkmark) allows teachers to obtain information about the assignments completed by the students prior to a lesson.

Example

A lecture with 500 students is accompanied by a training session. Teachers publish the assignment names and the number of achievable points per assignment. Each week the students work on the assignments and use the checkmark module to inform the teacher in advance about the assignments that they managed to complete. 

In the classroom session where individual students present their solutions, teachers can use a printed copy of the tabular overview to verify the indicated performance. After the training session there is the option of automatic grading on the basis of the assignments checked.

Versions

The Checkmark module is available for all Moodle versions from 2.5 up to 3.5.

Installation

Copy the module code directly to the mod/checkmark directory. Open the administration area (http://your-moodle-site/admin) to start the installation automatically.
