Workshop title Moodle v2: Getting the Most out of the Gradebook (Updated!) 
Workshop description

This workshop is intended for people that are already familiar with basic grading in Moodle. The Moodle gradebook is flexible and convenient, however, it takes planning and organization to get the most out this robust grading system. This workshop will cover basic grading of essays in the different modules, setting up and organizing your gradebook, choosing a grading system, manual grading, weighting grades, item analysis, and exporting your gradebook.
