Moodle 2.9.4 (Build: 20160111)
Instructors brought to me a question about how the Gradebook calculates the grades. When they attempt to replicate the calculation outside of Moodle on their own, the results are different. It is also unclear how Moodle is arriving at the calculated weight. How is this calculated? In both instances, the course aggregation is set to Natural. The categories are also set to Natural.
Scenario one - the instructor calculates a student's current overall grade to be 82.9%, but the grade book has the grade at 77.47%.
Scenario two - The weight for a particular category is 15% in the setup. The calculated weight is displayed in the User report for that category at 17.65%. Why the disparity? How is Moodle arriving at this number?
