I'm trying to set up something that is seemingly trivial: a scale of "Pass, Fail" that could be used in progress reports, showing a red fail if the assignment has received a grading "Fail". However, I'm unable to get it to work. No matter what grades I give, the assignment shows as "Pass" to the student and in the completion progress reports.
I tried making the scale "Pass,Fail", as "Fail,Pass" and as "0,1". I set the "Grade to pass" at "1.0", but still with a grade 0 the student was marked as having a "Passing grade". What am I doing wrong?
I'm using Moodle 3.3.6.
Are you using max and min grades (1,0)?
Have you set the course unit grade to your pass grade? (unit completion)
The Scale settings are for competencies, not for the grades. Navigate to your quiz, Select the Gradebook setup link , then select the Letters link. Adjust the current (default) letter grades as needed and Save.
I am changing all of my numeric grades to simple pass/fail values.
Also, from the Quiz activity select the Edit settings link, and set the Grade>Grade to pass value as needed.
Thanks Shirley, I tried implementing your suggestions and I appreciate the help. The test cases that I have deal with the Assignment activity. I did try to to set the Grade setting "Grade to pass" to "1.00". And as far as I understand, the scales can also be used in grading, not just for competencies?
There are 4 grade types:
- None - No grading possible
- Value - A numerical value with a maximum and minimum
- Scale - An item in a list
- Text - Feedback only
Only value and scale grade types may be aggregated. The grade type for an activity-based grade item is set on the activity settings page."
I have the same problem. Did you eventually work it out? Is there a solution or does the grade have to be numerical to work?
The only way around it, that I found, was to set the "Activity Completion" to "Students can manually mark the activity as completed"
Because if you are using the scale type grade - the activity will show as completed just by having attempted the assignment module. I can not see why that would be thought to be useful.
