I am having a lot of trouble setting up and understanding the grade book in Moodle. I like everything else about Moodle but this piece has given me a lot of trouble. I've tried all kinds of combinations and nothing comes out right. I have to show our instructors how to use it and since i don't understand what it's doing -- it's impossible!!!!
so here is the instructors scenario =
7 quizzes each 100 pt's - drop the 2 lowest 10% of final grade
5 exams each 100 pt's - drop the lowest 60% or 15% each
2 case studies each 100 pt's 10 % or 5% each
article # 1 100 pt's 8%
Article # 2 100 pt's 12 %
I have the quizzes and the exams in categories - I choose weighted mean of grades at the course level and at the category level. The articles and cases are each weighted at the item level. For some reason the category totals don't appear - only if I change it to sum of grades. and the course total is incorrect also.
I have spent many hours trying to figure this out and at this point I've become very frustrated. Any help to get this to work would be much appreciated.
If anyone can point me in the direction of some helpful explanations about the grade book I'd be grateful -I guess I'm just not following (understanding )the Moodle help files.
