New Plugin – Grade Distribution Report #MoodlePlugins

February 22nd, 2016

A new plugin released this week in the Moodle Plugins database is Grade Distribution report plugin which allows for viewing the distribution of student grades for a course regarding the current grade letter boundaries as well as changing these to shift the distribution.

Usually the grades needs to be informed to students at the beginning of the term however there may be some cases when you need to update the letter grades. 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.

New Plugin - Grade Distribution Report

The plugin is put under the Incubating category as of now but it is a grade report plugin type. You need to install it under Moodle_root_directory/grade/report/gradedist directory. Apart from that it also uses the external Highcharts JavaScript library, available free of charge for non-commercial use.

Complete details about the plugin can be found on the documentation page here. You can download the latest version of the plugin from this link.
