Create a grading scale

Instead of using numbers to mark an assignment or other assessable work, you can develop your own scale. A basic scale that is enabled by default is Fail / Re-attempt (not yet a pass) / Non-graded pass. You can create custom scales within your topic.

  2. Click on Grades

  3. Click on the Scales tab
    scales tab
  4. Click Add a new scale
    add a new scale button
  5. Give the scale a Name, for example Grading Scale for Assignment 1

  6. Enter the Scale values. The values range from negative / lowest to positive / highest, and separated by commas. For example: Poor, Average, Good, Excellent
    add scale values
  7. Click save changes
