incorrect grade book letter grades
 

Hi,

When using the A-F+- scale for any activity, when giving a student a mark through the grade book, the grade values are the opposite so giving an A grade actually gives the mark of F (screenshot 1 and 2) and giving an F grade actually gives the mark of A (screenshot 3+4).  Using the override to give a different grade makes no difference.   There are no additional calculations used and and the letters have their correct association marks (screenshot 6).  I did notice that when viewing the grade book setup, the max grade for the letters is F where i presume is should be an A (screenshot 7).  I'm not sure how to change this settings.  Can any shed any light on the issue?  is there a setting that can be changed or a bug with Moodle.

Regards

Ehsan

Yes the max grade is your problem.  You can change this under the assignment settings.  It is not that the gradebook is giving the opposite settings - it is that three of your activities have a max grade of 10 (which is an F) and the totals are averaging out.  You cannot put in Letter Grades as the grade, you need to enter a numerical value.

Ehsan,

Scales need to be set up from low to high, for example: F,D,C,B,A. In this example F=0 and A=4. I am guessing that you might have entered the scale as A,A-,B+,B,B-,C+,C,C-,D+,D,F. Then the A would be equal to 0 and the F would be the highest grade 10. Swap that around to:

F,D,D+,C-,C,C+,B-,B,B+,A-,A
