Platform: Moodle (v4 or newer)
With Moodle LTI 1.3 with Advantage, there is no longer a one-to-one ratio for grade return. This means that all scores for TestOut assignments in your course that students complete will automatically be returned to your Moodle Grade Book, whether they click on the actual TestOut assignment link in the course or not. Additionally, if students log in directly to testout.com to complete assignments, grades will still automatically be returned to the Moodle course Grade Book. Though please note that students need to click at least one TestOut assignment in the Moodle course for their TestOut account to be integrated (so scores can return from TestOut to Moodle).
Each instructor will also want to click at least one TestOut assignment in the Moodle course. This step will ensure that the instructor TestOut account is integrated, and automatically create a class in the instructor TestOut account named after the Moodle course. As each student clicks on their initial TestOut assignment in the Moodle course, in addition to their TestOut account becoming integrated, they will also be automatically enrolled in the automatically created class in the instructor's TestOut account.
Note: Only scores achieved within a Moodle course's start and end dates will be synced to Moodle.
Further Note: TestOut sends a raw percentage score to the LMS. Then it’s up to the LMS on how to work with the percentage and display the score. In most cases, the percentage calculates against configured points possible in each assignment and awards the student accordingly.
Why are Moodle gradebook columns being created for ungraded section headers?
I'm deselecting items in the "Graded/Ungraded" portion of the content selector, but they're still creating grade book items in my Moodle course. Help?
Some older integrations were configured before the option to split added links between Graded and Ungraded was supported in Moodle. If your integration was configured before the end of 2024, please have your LMS Admin go to your LabSim tool configuration in Moodle, navigate to Privacy, and change Accept grades from tool from 'Always' to 'As specified in Deep Linking definition or Delegate to teacher'. This will allow your Moodle to correctly process the selections you make in the Graded/Ungraded portion of LTI link placement.
