      Description

      Moodle data in increasingly important for learning analytics and plugins can harvest data for learning analytics systems (such as JISC's Learning Data Hub in UK).

      As well as VLE activity logs we need a way to improve workflows that push grades back into student record systems or better still (and quicker) direct to learning analytics data stores. It would be useful then if there was some way to mark which activity was 'summative' or 'formative' as a basis for developing such workflows.

      Only activities that were assessed (i.e. gradeable) would need the setting. Setting could be checkbox or dropdown ('Summative', 'Formative', '') or something else?

      Am sure this needs more discussion but a recent meeting of Moodle User Group London brought this up and I promised to log it. We would like to be able to develop a plugin to help match Moodle activities back to Student Record System assessment patterns and this core code would help us to this. Also for Learning Analytics - xAPI plugin could be used to send back grades from Moodle to learner record store for appropriately marked activities.
