Grading Schemas

Grading Schemas take the actual points scored from a Grade Item and compare it to the total points possible for that item to derive a percentage. This percentage is mapped to a range of scores in order to display a grade. The Grade Center includes a copy of a default grading schema.

Adopting a Schema Other Than the Default

The default schema is set by the System Administrator. In most cases, it is best to use the system default so that grades are presented consistently. However, it is possible to create new Grading Schemas to reflect the multiple ways grading is accomplished.

 

Primary and Secondary Displays

Grades can have a Primary Display and a Secondary Display. The Primary Display is shown to Students. The Secondary Display is viewed only in the Grade Center. Grades can be displayed in these formats:

  • Score: Shows a numeric score such as "78". This format is commonly used as a Secondary Display. It is not often revealed to students unless they understand the total score possible and can compare their score to the total.
  • Text: Shows text such as Pass or Fail, or a range of text messages such as "Excellent", "Very Good", "Good", "Fair", and "Poor".
  • Percentage: Shows a percentage such as "90%".
  • Letter: Shows a letter grade such as "A", "A-", "B+" and so on.
  • Complete/Incomplete: Shows a check mark for complete.
