Grades for each individual class are located within their Moodle page. Grades are located in the Administration block on the front page of your course. If this box does not appear on your screen, it has been “docked” and it is now located to the top left hand corner of the screen.
Click the docked Administration button. The box will appear and you can navigate to the grades section. If you wish to have this box “undocked” and back on the page, click the arrow pointing to the right button to “undock” this box.
Note: you may dock or undock any of the main boxes on your Moodle pages.
You can hide courses on your Moodle homepage that you no longer wish to see.
On the right hand side of your screen, click Customize this page. This will allow you to drag courses to the top or bottom of the page. There is also an option to select the number of courses to display; this could permit you to hide completed courses that are still visible on Moodle.
Drag all the courses you wish to hide towards the bottom of the page so they are the last courses listed and select in the dropdown box the number of courses you wish to display. Select the number of current classes you wish to keep visible by counting from the top down. When finished, click Stop customizing this page. You will now see the updated order of your courses, an indication of how many courses you have hidden, and a link to show the hidden courses.
