Grader allows site administrators and editors to grade user posts.
When the comment:
@grade A. Great Work!!!
is added to a post, it can be broken down into three parts. First, the token (@grade) signifies that this is a grade. Second, the grade (A) which follows the token, and third the comment (Great Work!!!) which is seperated from the grade by the delimeter (.). If an administrator grades a post a second time, the plugin automatically deletes the first grade.
Grader changes behaviors in three locations.
Only instructors and the post's author can see the grade for a post.
The message at the bottom can be changed through the plugin's option screen.
The manage posts panel On the manage posts panel, grader adds a Grade column. For posts with a grade, grader also adds a "Edit Grade" action.
The manage comments panel Because comments cannot be removed from the manage comments panel, for users other than the post's author or the site's administrator or editor the grade and the comment have been replaced by a hidden text message. The hidden text message defaults to "Private", but can be changed through the plugin's admin panel.
