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 Result options 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 Grade calculation, you will see the following 3 options:
- Grade formula
Fill in a passing grade. 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 grade
Choose what the lowest grade possible can be.
- Limit the highest grade
Choose what the highest grade possible can be.
Choose to round the final mark to two decimals, one decimal, round to halves or round to whole numbers.
- Passed grade
This sets the grade needed to pass the test.
The grading table can be used to convert the number of points to a mark. It is also possible to export the grading table from an assignment and import the grading table into another assignment. This can be useful if you want to share the same grading table between assignments. Intermediate points will be rounded down to the nearest number of points. This will determine the corresponding grade. If you refer to the table below, if a student was awarded 5.49 points, their grade would still 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.
