Creating and Managing Grade Scheme (Administrators)

A grading scheme is a set of criteria that measures varying levels of achievement in a classroom. Grading schemes are based on percentage ranges, and each percentage range is given a name (name value could be alphanumeric). A grade scheme can include any number of achievement levels.

Grading schemes can be defined as default at the classroom level and site level. You can set any given grade scheme as default at site level and that grade scheme will become the default grade scheme for all classrooms that doesn't have a set grade scheme. However, instructors can change the grade scheme later as per their requirement.

This article will guide you on:

Creating a Grade Scheme

6. You can now add name to the newly inserted grade. The range will be set as the mean of the range of two existing grades between which you have inserted the new grade. For instance, if you have inserted a grade between two grades with range 50% and 25%, then the new grade will have the range as the mean of the existing learning grades [(50+25) / 2] = 37.5%

Grade name can be alphanumeric, that is, you can use both alphabets and numerals in the label name.
