Grade Distribution

The report grade distribution (/grade/report/gradedist) visualizes the grades of students in a course. Changes to letter grades (i.e. the boundary of a grade) can be analysed visually, saved and therefore overwritten if necessary.

Example

Usually letter grades of a course should be communicated to the students at the beginning of a term. Occasionally it occurs that changes to letter grades are necessary. The grade distribution visualizes the grades of students. Changes to letter grades (i.e. the boundary of a grade) can be analysed visually, saved and therefore overwritten if necessary. By means of an alternating graphic chart changes can be seen immediately.

Versions

The grade distribution report is available for all Moodle versions from 2.7 up to 3.5.

Installation

The module requires the external Highcharts JavaScript library, available free of charge for non-commercial use.

Copy the module code directly to the moodleroot/grade/report/gradedist directory. Download version 4.x of the Highcharts library from http://www.highcharts.com/download. Copy both, the core module highcharts.src.js from the js subdirectory and the exporting.src.js module from the js/modules subdirectory into the directory grade/report/gradedist/js.

After copying all required files open the administration area as an administrator (http://your-moodle-site/admin) to start the installation automatically.
