When calculating a mark you can choose to grade with a formula or to grade with a table.
 Click on your course or use the search bar in the Coursessection.
 Click on your assignment or use the search bar.
 Click on settings Settings in the menu at the top.
 Click on Mark calculation in the menu on the left.
 Click the dropdown button Mark calculation type and choose Formula or Table.
Marking with a formula
 Click the dropdown button Rounding and choose the rounding method.
 Fill in the marking formula.
 Check the box Guess correction if applicable.
 Check the box Limit the lowest mark if applicable. Fill in what the lowest possible mark is.
 Check the box Limit the highest mark if applicable. Fill in what the highest possible mark is.
 Fill in the pass 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. Options that are available for this formula:

 Math operators: + ,  , * , / , ^
 Logic functions: IF, AND, OR
 Comparison operators: <, >, <=, >=, !=, =
 Numeric functions: MIN, MAX, ROUND, ROUNDUP, ROUNDDOWN

 Explanation: The following formula gives an answer of 1 if no points are gathered and increases as a polynomial.
Code: 1 + 0.026984127 * points + 0.002050265 * points ^ 2  Explanation: If total number of points is lower than 45, use (points / 9) + 1 as marking formula. If total number of points is equal or larger than 45, use (4 * points / 45)+2 as marking formula.
Code: IF(points < 45, (points / 9) + 1, (4 * points / 45)+2)  Explanation: The maximum of 0 and points minus 28 are compared and subsequently multiplied by 4 and divided by the total minus 28. Next, two things are added to this number: the minimum of 28 and points multiplied by 5 and divided by 28 and one (so a student will not get a mark lower than 1).
Code: MAX(0, points  28) * 4 / (total  28) + MIN(28, points) * 5 / 28 + 1
 Explanation: The following formula gives an answer of 1 if no points are gathered and increases as a polynomial.

Marking with a table
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.
 Click the dropdown button Rounding and choose the rounding method.
 Click Add row and fill in a number of points, the mark and a letter grade.
 Click Save.
 Repeat this for all scores.
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.
