Grading system in Moodle

Is there a possibility in Moodle to set your own grading system? I want to award my students points rather than giving them a mark or a percentage.

For example, it is possible to award 600 points to an assignment? And will quizzes automatically calculate the number of points gained, e.g. 540 of 600?

Second question, is it possible to add up all these grades, i.e. 1200 points out of 2000?

For those gamers out there, I am experimenting with an integrated XP-system in my classes. Students can reach a certain level which equals a mark.

As a school we have an LMS  (itslearning), but is does not provide such an option. EdModo does, but that LMS seems buggy and unintuitive.

Hey Wouter,

Sure you can. Here's a page on custom scales: https://docs.moodle.org/32/en/Scales

Oh, and there's already a plugin allowing to "level up" at certain points. You can look into it here: https://moodle.org/plugins/block_xp

Good luck, and enjoy Moodling around smile
