Just upgraded to MooTyper v4.2.2 BETA, Don't be fooled by the word BETA, as the program is quite stable. I just keep finding new things to do and add to the plugin's code, so until I am satisfied I have not got a bunch of bugs in the code, I will not do a stable release.

This version of MooTyper has some major new features.

  • For the past few releases, within MooTyper's own grading system, you could grade for both precision and WPM, precision only, or WPM only. However, the only grade that got passed into the Moodle grade and/or rating system, was the MooTyper precision. That is changed in this new version.  In any of the three modes, exam, practice, or lesson, and in either, whole grade or rating, you can set the grade to both, precision and WPM, precision only, or WPM only. You can even set both to 0, but beware, it will enter the activity into the grade book, but will not enter a grade unless the teacher does an override.
  • In the grade tables on both the gview.php page and the owngrades.php page, I have added a new grade column base on the above grade/ratings.
  • Both of those grade tables can be sorted, ascending or descending, based on the new grade column.
  • Currently, the chart bar for series 1, $serie**sperminute, has been disabled and replaced by a new series 4, $seriesgrade.
  • CSVexport from the gview.php page now includes the new grade column.
  • CSVexport from the gview.php page now includes the GMT date and time as part of the file name, so as long as the are created one minute apart, new exports do not over write the previous export.
