This is my first post to a Moodle forum, so please bear with me if I've put it my question in the wrong place. I'm still learning my way around!
I have a course that has activities (quizzes, projects with file submissons, etc.) that need to be graded on different scales. None are based on the the standard scale of 0-100. Some can earn as many as 350 point, others as few as 20 points.
When I create a new scale, do I have to input every possible numeric value? For example, the activites that can earn 350 points -- do I have to input 0,1,2,3... all the way up to 350? Are negative values allowed? In some cases, if a student does not turn in an assignment at all, I want to deduct points, so I need the option of giving a negative grade.
And when I go to create a new scale, every one defaults to a standard scale. The checkbox that indicates that is greyed out and cannot be changed. So how do I create a custom scale?
