Understanding Grading Systems

Selecting a grading system is the first step in setting up your grade book. The grading system determines how the grade items in your grade book contribute to users’ final grades. There are three options:

  • grade items can count as a percentage of a final grade worth 100%,
  • grade items can be worth a certain amount of points that are totaled for a final grade.
  • you can define a custom formula for how grade items contribute to a final grade.

Choose the option that best matches how you plan to evaluate users.
