Important notice

Currently, grades for the MUMIE Tasks are only updated when they are displayed in the moodle gradebook (e.g. the course's grader report is viewed or the student opens his own gradebook). This means that we cannot guarantee that all grades are up-to-date, when they are accessed by other means than the one described above.
