Re: Weighting groups of grades
 

Hi Emma,

Thanks for your response. I worked through your instructions as best I could but Moodle does not appear to be able to do what I need it to do. It requires a weighting of each graded item and then adds all the weights together. I need a process that calculates the simple mean of X grades in a category and then applies the weight of that category just to the mean and only one time. Then it adds all the weighted means together. If it is there, I most assuredly missed it.

Thanks again.

Set the grading method of each category to Simple Weighted Mean of Grades - despite the name, this method will remove the weighting for each grade item and then within the category, it will act like total points.

Keep the Weighted Mean of Grades for the course grading and that will give you the option to assign a weight just to the category.

Emma-

Thanks for trying Emma. Nothing connects for me in this process. I have never used any of the screens in question before so if a basic (and I mean basic) step is left out because I should know it, I am lost. The fact that terms don't mean what the words say they should makes it even more difficult to learn by trial and error.
Do you know if there is a task sheet listing all the basic steps anywhere for this?

What version are you using?  Please post a screenshot of your categories and items page and I can direct you.  I have given you the steps but maybe your site is using different terminology - is this a site that you set up?

Hi  Emma

It is a class that was constructed by our webmaster a number of years ago and I have been updating the assignments and adding new ones  as we change texts.

I tried to download the screen print but the system says no because it is larger than allowed. If it is permissible, I can use my personal email to send it. I do need an email address to do that though.
