It has been some time I am trying to find a suitable setting for graded items that are restricted.
In a course module we have:
Activities 1a - 1b are restricted to each other. If student takes 1a, the 1b will hide and vise versa.
Activity 1 (a OR b) worth 50%
Activity 2 worth 50% as well.
So if student Z gains full marks in Activity 1a and Activity 2 the total score of the module should be 100%.
If student Z gains full marks in Activity 1a but not take Activity 2 the module total should be 50% too.
The problem here is that in gradebook if I exclude empty grades I get the correct total as far it concerns 1a - 1b, but wrong total as far it concerns Activity 1 and 2.
Doesn't sound reasonable graded activities that are restricted to be automatically excluded from gradebook aggregations?
As there is a setting in gradebook to hide hidden items from the gradebook, shouldn't be a setting to exclude hidden items from aggregation?
Exclude empty grades is not the same with exclude hidden (restricted) items.
In the above example if student X takes only Activity 1a, Activities 1b and Activity 2 are treated the same from the system, while they are not. Activity 1b is hidden due to course restrictions (users can take either 1a either 1b) and Activity 2 is an empty grade.
Calculations is the only option I see here, yet not my favourite. I would appreciate if anyone has a better idea.
