The gradebook in Moodle (UBOnline and UBTAFE) has been configured to produce a total by summing all grades. As such we are advising teachers to set up their assessments in Moodle to be worth, in grade terms, what the overall percentage of that assessment item is worth. e.g. an assignment worth 40% should be given a max grade of 40. The total of all graded assignments should therefore equal 100, or 100% of the student’s grade.
We feel that this is the most logical way to set the gradebook up as the default, however you do have the option to change this setting for your individual course gradebook should you wish to.
Important Note: The default gradebook setting for Moodle (UBOnline and UBTAFE) was configured on 27/01/2010. If you have set up your course prior to this date then the change to this setting will not have affected your course and you will need to change it manually.
Important note:One important thing to remember is that quizzes, which you don’t want to count towards final grades will count until you set them not to.
