From MoodleDocs


From Moodle 1.9 onwards, teachers may add notes about their students.

The notes page may be accessed via the Notes tab in a user's profile page or the Notes tab on the Participants page.

Note status

A note's status determines who can see the note.

  • Personal - The note will be visible only to you (as the teacher)
  • Course - The note will be visible to other teachers in this course (users with notes:view capability in this course)
  • Site - The note will be visible to other teachers in all courses (users with notes:view capability in any course)

Tips and tricks

  • Enable/disable notes: In Moodle 1.9.4 onwards, notes may be disabled by unticking the enablenotes checkbox in Administration > Security > Site policies.
