Usability recommendations for developers in order to preserve consistency
It would be better if there are two types of grading:
- Type of grading 1: Includes the gradebook and quick grading that would have the following fields: Information about the user and time, Grade, Feedback, excluded, hidden, hidden until, locked, locked after, feedback, format, html format (that is all the information of the gradebook and the quickgrading).
- Type of grading 2: Used in the Forum rating, you can grade (often you chose the grade with a select box) and a link to the first type of grading.
- Type 2 should display not only the grading mark but also any comments that have been added.
- Type 2 should have the submit button at the bottom of the page and next to each grade so there is not an usability problem when if there are many posts per page.
