Note: You are currently viewing documentation for Moodle 1.9. Up-to-date documentation for the latest stable version is available here: Grader report preferences.


Teachers can set their preferences for the grader report using the "My report preferences" or "My preferences tab via the Grades>Grader report. These settings will apply to all courses for that teacher. The teacher may change them at any time.

The teacher sees the settings grouped under 3 headings. There is an "Advanced settings" button.

An administrator can set the initial defaults for all teachers through Site Administration>Grades>Report settings>Grader reports. The settings are arranged differently than the teacher's settings.
