In Schoology, there is a way to create weights and topics for the grading system. Even the distribution of the overall totals throughout the year is there. So for example:
Let's say that assignments and assessments will be split up between quizzes, homework, and classwork with each having a weight of 15,10,10 respectfully. If my school has three terms, I can split the weight of the terms as I like. After all of this, I can then easily import all of this information to any of my other courses with the press of a button. The same can be done to rubrics and method of grading (A+, A , A- or numerical).
The question right now is: can I do this in the Moodle systems. I haven't been able to find a way yet.
