I've started to use Moodle for grading (sorry, I can't figure out the Moodle version) and I have recently noticed that I don't know how to do the following (searched here and there to no avail):
I have successfully entered and calculated the grades for the semester: a bunch of activities
with weighted average, contributing 40% to the final grade, and a main exam (the other 60%). With its categories and all. Now, it turns out that there is a second chance for the final exam, in a few months, and I would like to use the 40% that I already have with the next exam's 60% to get another final grade.
It seems to me that I can create another category for the second exam, and maybe use a "grade calculation" (http://docs.moodle.org/24/en/Grade_calculations
, just found out about it) to get the numbers right (maybe create two categories/items and tell each one to use one thing and not the other). However, I don't see that I can have two "course totals" and it may be quite confusing to change the current one to a new one.
Do you have any suggestions?
