The gradebook is very detailed, as it is designed for all aspects of grading that may be required in institutions across the spectrum. Having said that, it is also basic enough in its default state to give any educator a clear and detailed overview of the work their students are undertaking. It can be customized in terms of output and display to match your institution and departmental needs and can provide a solid base for quality interaction with students as part of a pastoral program. There is a wealth of detail on the gradebook on the Moodle site, and this chapter can only cover some of the more basic details. More comprehensive details and examples can be accessed at: http://docs.moodle.org/en/Gradebook.
