I'm getting really frustrated with Gradebook, it just doesn't seem to be user friendly! I want to do something which I see as pretty simple but I'm getting tied up with values,scales,aggregates......etc etc
Right, I would like to create a assignment (which I can do) then mark it using A level grades A-E with 45 being the maximum mark. I would like my scale to be A,A-,B+,B,B-,C+,C,C-,D+,D,D-,E+,E,E-,U. I am not interested in putting the actual mark out of 45 (i keep that elsewhere). I would then like to 'course total' to be the mode (I think) of all the marks I have given so that a pupil who is mostly geting C+ for example will see that at the end of the course. Is this the best way to get a reflection of the set of marks?
Please could someone help me do this? There seem to be so many variables when setting this up. I have created the scale but it says my maximum mark is 16. Do I need this to be letters? Is this a scale or a value? Argghhh!! I'm going nuts and I still have the damned essays to mark!!
