Our recent post on the highly anticipated redesign of the Assignment Grading user interface has received quite a bit of attention and the conversation is still buzzing on that page. Clearly, this is something that is a hot topic in the Moodle community and for good reason.

For those of you just tuning in: the grading interface in Moodle has been criticized openly by a number of institutions and also named as one of the critical reasons some institutions (for example, see here) are choosing Canvas (from Instructure) as their preferred LMS. As such, a redesign and rethinking of the grading interface in Moodle is clearly something worthwhile for Moodle HQ to invest time and resources in.

The prototype of the new activity grading interface is now available at:

All of the details you need to log into this demo are located on the front page of the demo site and, as noted, the demo site is reset every two hours. The redesign and changes that have been implemented should follow the issues outlined in the tracker at this link.

Please take a moment to check out the prototype demo and give feedback.

  1. Testing on iPad pro – Greetings and thank you so much for this great and much needed work. I have tried to view the new Moodle grading UX prototype on my iPad Pro – and I am not getting great results. I and a member of our English faculty are currently researching apps and best practices for faculty and admins who wish to use the iPad Pro for their daily Moodle work. What we see as the greatest need is the ability to open a document and be able to use the iPad Pencil or a stylus.
