Moodle Gradebook - Second Edition

This book was a really helpful tool with jumping into Moodle Gradebook, the 2nd edition covered practically all the changes made to the framework. I've used this for training and education purposes at home and work. The author did a rather fine job keeping everything neat and organized which I appreciated. I really enjoyed the flow of the book from customizing grades to the progress tracking features, it really has everything you could need. This book gives you all the information you need to create some practice activities for your child at home to reinforce what they're learning in school, you can engage at their level and also learn with them. This book was tremendously helpful with getting started.
