Project Final Grades allow the professor to help project what grades a student needs to make for a final exam. If the option is turned on for students to view this option, students can also use this report to project their own final grade.

They are able to fill in grades for any grades not already entered into the gradebook and this report will calculate their overall grade for them using the values that are keyed in.

To Use Projected Final Grade in Gradebook:

1. Log in to Moodle.

2. Open your desired course.

3. Select Course Administration | Grades under the Administration Block.

Grades on the administration block on Moodle


4. Once Gradebook opens, click Projected Final Grade under


General Information

By default, Moodle courses get created 30 days prior to the first day of class and students get enrolled into the course 14-days prior to the first day of class.

You can change the dates of these processes, up to a limit of 60-days prior to the first day of class, as long as you are listed as the instructor of record on the mainframe by your department.
 

Changing Your Creation & Enrollment Settings

1. Click the Creation & Enrollment link in the Course Preferences System block on the Home level of Moodle.

2. In the text boxes for creation and enrollment, enter numbers for how many days prior to the first day of class you want these processes to take place. For example, if you would like your course(s) to be created 50 days



This article describes how to import all of your materials from other Moodle courses into a current Moodle course. Importing All Materials allows the instructor to import all of the content from another Moodle course into a current one without clearing the content that already exists there. If you wish to override all content with your current course and start from scratch, you will need to Overwrite Your Course. If you wish to manually select which content should be imported, you will need to use the Selective Import.

For additional information, please visit GROK article #18477 Moodle 3: Ways to Restore or Import Content into a Course.
 

To Import All Materials From Other Moodle Courses Into A Current Course:
