In the previous step, you learnt how to view the individual results of a student. In this step, you will learn how to configure the result evaluation method.
Click settings Settings within your assignment and click Mark calculation on the left. You will be brought to the page where you can configure the result evaluation method. If you click the drop down menu Mark calculation type, you will see the following 3 options:
Choose to round the final mark to two decimals, one decimal, round to halves or round to whole numbers.
- Marking formula
Fill in a passing mark. Standard, the formula is [1 + 9 * points / total], where points is the number of points obtained by a student and total is the total amount of points a student can obtain.
- Limit the lowest mark
Choose what the lowest mark possible can be.
- Limit the highest mark
Choose what the highest mark possible can be.
- Pass mark
This sets the mark needed to pass.
You can use the mark calculation type 'Table' to convert the number of points to a mark. It is also possible to export the table from an assignment and import the table into another assignment. This can be useful if you want to share the same table between assignments. Intermediate points will be rounded down to the nearest number of points. This will determine the corresponding mark. If you refer to the table below, if a student was awarded 5.49 points, their mark will be a 1.0 resulting in a fail. A total of 5.49 points will not be rounded to 5.5 points.
If your digital test needs to be self reviewed or if your digital test is a practice/mock exam, you can choose the grade calculation None.
