For this test you will need a course containing at least 1 student and at least 2 grade items. This test involves repeating to test exporting all, none and some grade items. It also involves repetition to check the various grade export formats Moodle supports.
Before testing the XML export, make sure the student(s) and activities have an ID number set. A user ID number may be set by logging in as an admin, editing the user's profile and going to the Optional section. (If you are using the QA testing site for this test, please see the QA testing guide for details of how to request admin access.) Activity ID numbers may be set on the activity settings page under 'Common module settings'.
