At the end of the school year, eAcademy staff members reset Moodle courses to delete existing data, which includes assignment and quiz grades, as well as forum posts and grades. There have been times when a student is re-enrolled in the exact same course the following school year and the grades get retained. In that case, you have two options to clear existing data so the cumulative running grade is accurate in the Moodle and Genius gradebooks.

Option 1: Override the grade and then grade the new work in the Moodle gradebook

You will override the grades in the Moodle gradebook and allow the student to complete assignments, quizzes, and forums. After the student has submitted or completed the work, you will need to grade the work in the Moodle gradebook and not in the assignment, quiz, or forum.

NOTE: When using the Override feature, you are not able to grade the work in the applicable assignment, quiz, or forum. You must grade the work in the Moodle gradebook unless you choose to use Option 2.

Option 2: Override the grade and then grade the new work in the assignment, quiz, or forum

You will override the grades in the Moodle gradebook and allow the student to complete assignments, quizzes, and forums. After the student has submitted or completed the work, you will return to the gradebook, deselect the Override, and grade the work in the applicable assignment, quiz, or forum.

Overriding a Grade in the Moodle Gradebook

Navigate to your Moodle course.

From the left Navigation panel, click Grades to access the Grader report.

Click the Single view tab.

From the Select user… drop-down list, click the student from which you need to clear grades.

Under the Override column, select the items that contain a grade and/or feedback. Selecting Override allows you to delete existing grades and any comments in the Feedback column.

Delete the grade from the Grade column and delete any comments from the Feedback column.

Scroll to the top or bottom of the page and click Save.

Click Continue.

Click Continue a second time.
