      Description

      I'm just looking at students performance across a range of assessments and I need to now be able to message those who are poor in one or other of several categories to tell them to come to extra revision. No easy way to do it for all at once though.

      If there was a checkbox by each student's name and a dropdown at the bottom exactly as there is on the browse user accounts page allowing a note to be added or a message to be sent, then the gradebook highlighting would allow quick and very specific messages and feedback to be sent.

        Sounds like a a good idea (to have some "bulk" operations in the gradebook. Not sure if this will have to wait to 2.0, anyway.

        FYC, Nicolas.

        Just wondering whether it's a good idea to pack another feature into the gradebook, or whether bulk messaging via the participants page is sufficient?

        Any comments? Is there a forum discussion about this feature request? If not, please could someone start one.

        Definitely needed. The gradebook is where at a glance info can be gathered like who is behind, who missed 3 assignments, who's doing well. I can't message those students as a group to comment on their progress without writing all their names down on a bit of paper and then selecting the one by one in the participants list.

        Being able to add notes in bulk would be very handy too as a running commentary could be added to accounts about whether they are on target or missing deadlines.

        Needed. But I suggest creating centralized set of actions that can be used in any place (participants page, gradebook, different reports in activities, etc).
