How to Set Up Grade Integration in Wisenet and Moodle

The Moodle Grade plugin allows grading in Moodle to update Wisenet Unit Enrolment Outcomes and End Dates. It works for both Australia and New Zealand and is designed for flexibility to update 1 or more Wisenet Unit Enrolments based on grading of 1 or more Moodle Assignments.

The diagram on your right gives you a snapshot around the flexibility to update 1 or more Unit Enrolments.

Before you begin

Required Knowledge: Moodle and Moodle Integration

Required LRM and Moodle Access: Admin

Required Pre-Steps: Setup Moodle Integration Plugins

  1. Navigate to Moodle > Site Administration
  2. Click on Plugins
  3. Click on Enrolments and select Wisenet Moodle Connector
  4. Under the section Remote enrolment sync, the Remote course field should be either:
    • CourseOfferCode, or
    • UnitOfferCode
Important Note:
  • Automatic outcome updating only works if you link Unit Offer Codes or Course Offer Codes.
  • For New Zealand it only updates SDR outcomes

Create Grade Scales

You can have as many values as you like e.g. Pending Completion, RPL

  • For a grade scale value of ‘Competent‘ it will update the outcome to:
    • 20 for Australia
    • 2 for New Zealand (SDR outcome only)
  • For a grade scale value of ‘Not Yet Competent‘ it will update the outcome to:
    • 30 for Australia
    • 4 for New Zealand (SDR outcome only)

To create a new grade scale we recommend following the set up and logic below:

  1. Go to Site Administration and click on Grades
  2. Click Scales
  3. Click Add a new scale
  4. Give your scale a name
  5. If your Moodle course has multiple activities/quizzes but only the overall grade will need to be synced to Wisenet, then under Scale for this request, enter the following logic as an example:
    • If the pass mark is 50% to be competent, then enter the following: In Progress, In Progress, In Progress, In Progress, Competent, Competent, Competent, Competent, Competent 
    • If the pass mark is 80% to be competent, then enter the following: In Progress, In Progress, In Progress, In Progress, In Progress, In Progress, In Progress, Competent, Competent, Competent
    • If the pass mark is 100% to be competent, then enter the following: In Progress, In Progress, In Progress, In Progress, In Progress, In Progress, In Progress, In Progress, In Progress, Competent
  6. Enter a Description
  7. Click Save changes

We suggest to set up a site-wide grade scale that can then be used in any Moodle course

Create Grade Categories

For every unit that should get updated, create a grade category in your Moodle Courses

  1. Go into the relevant Course and under Course Administration click on Gradebook setup
  2. Click the Add category button near the bottom of the page
  3. The Category Name should be the same (identical) to the Unit Code and this is mandetory, i.e:
    • If you are trying to update ‘Unit A’ the Grade Category name should be Unit A
    • If you are trying to update ‘Unit A’ and ‘Unit B’ the Grade Category name should be Unit A;Unit B
  4. For Aggregation method, choose either Mean of grades or Simple weighted mean of grades
  5. For Grade Type choose Scale
  6. For Scale choose the grading connector scale that you created in the Site Admin
  7. Leave everything else as default and click Save Changes

The code should be the same as the code of the unit that should be updated

  1. Under the Select Column, tick the activities you want to link and group to the relevant grade category
  2. Under Move selected items to, choose the grade category
  3. Click Continue

Mark Grades

Update the grade category outcome as appropriate

  • To trigger the grade to be synced to Wisenet simply choose a ‘Competent’ and ‘Non Competent’ value in Wisenet and this will update the Outcome and Unit Enrolment End Date
