[ay15-16] Moodle - Blind Grading


UW-Madison is adopting Canvas as the single, centrally supported learning management system, and discontinuing support for Desire2Learn (D2L) and Moodle. Access to D2L and Moodle will permanently end June 1, 2018. For information about retaining materials from D2L or Moodle, please refer to this document.

This article is about the Blind Grading feature in Moodle.

Blind grading is a feature that makes it possible to hide the identity of the student while you are grading items.  Students' names will be replaced by randomly generated Participant numbers.

To enable this feature, click Edit settings in the "Administration" block of the assignment.

Select Yes from the "Blind grading" drop-down in the "Grade" section.

Now when grading submissions, there will be a randomly generated number instead of a name in the "First name / Surname" section.

Blind Marking Example
NOTE: This must be enabled before any submissions or grades are made to the assignment.
NOTE: People with the role "Manager" will still be able to see names of students.
