I simply can't find a good explanation in the docs of what "maximum grade" (for quizzes and assignments, etc) means, or recommendations of how it should be used in different contexts.
I don't know what I should set as maximum grade for my quizzes. Does the maximum grade affect how the quiz score is weighted in the gradebook?
Here is my situation: I have a course with six grade categories, one of which is quizzes. Each quiz has a different number of questions, so is "out of" a different number. But each is equally weighted within its grade category, and thus worth the same amount to the course's final percentage grade.
I don't know if I should be setting the max grade of these quizzes to 100, or if I should be setting it as the number of available points (127, 112, etc) in the quiz.
And does the same answer apply to assignments, where the teacher will be manually entering a grade?
Thanks in advance for the help.
ETA: To clarify, I have set all aggregation as "weighted mean"
