Note: You are currently viewing documentation for Moodle 3.4. Up-to-date documentation for the latest stable version of Moodle is likely available here: Capabilities/moodle/rating:rate.


From MoodleDocs
  • This allows a user to rate items in a course, depending upon the permission to rate items in particular activities and rating being enabled
  • This capability is allowed for the default roles of manager, teacher, non-editing teacher, student and authenticated user

Advantages of having moodle/rating:rate AND rating capabilities for particular activities:

  • The general rating caps are all on by default, so only the forum/database/glossary ones need to be toggled.
  • You can turn off forum rating at the course level, independent from the database or glossary.
  • You can switch all ratings on/off at the course level (without editing every single activity).
  • All ratings across a course can be combined in a ratings report or activity report.
