Gradebook: Exporting to a File Moodle ISU


The gradebook in Moodle ISU can be exported and imported using four different formats (OpenDocument spreadsheets, plain text file, excel spreadsheet, or XML file).  Grades can be recorded and calculated throughout the semester using Moodle ISU; however, final grades must be entered into Banner at the end of the semester.
