Moodle Grades: Category Settings (Faculty/Staff)
Posted by Eric Strom on 21 December 2012 11:38 AM

Grade categories allow configuration of how the Moodle gradebook calculates items they contain. Category settings include:

  • Calculating only items that have been graded (enabled by default)
  • Aggregation method
  • Dropping the lowest or highest score(s)
  • Customizing how a category score is displayed (percentages, real values, .etc)

This article assumes you already have added one or more grade categories in your course. Learn about Adding Grade Categories in Moodle.

Note: Official College grades are only found in Records and Registration on the Inside Augsburg page.

  1. In the Administration block, select 'Gradebook setup' under Course administration.
