I am setting up a grade book in Moodle 1.9. I have categories (e.g., quizzes, assignments, discussions, final exam), but I don't want to weight categories. I just want to assign various points to each item within each category. Is there a way to set up the grade book such that students see their course grade represented as a percentage of points possible at a given point in the course?
For example, the total points for the entire course equal 1,500. Midway through the course, the points possible equal 800, since some quizzes and assignments are not yet completed. If the student has earned 700 points, his course grade at that point would be 700/800 (87.5%), not 700/1,500 (46.7%). The latter is what I get with the aggregation method set to SUM for both categories and the course.
Thanks for any advice you can offer!
