Adding a Blank Graded Item

An instructor might want to add a blank Graded Item for a variety of reasons, such as:

  • An instructor might facilitate an assignment in the classroom, in which no evidence of student work is uploaded in Moodle LMS. To assign credit to the assignment the instructor would create a blank Graded Item.
  • An instructor might record daily participation or course participation using a blank Graded Item.
