In the lead-up to Moodle 2, there was quite a bit of discussion on the question of improving scales. Specifically, many users are looking for a way to map scale values to arbitrary numeric values, which would give greater flexibility and transparency to scale aggregation.
Major discussions included:
- This tracker issue: https://tracker.moodle.org/browse/MDL-17258
- This forum discussion: https://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=140907
- And this development proposal: https://docs.moodle.org/dev/Scales
Then, around 2011, all discussion seems to have stopped. Does anyone know the reason?
This functionality would be a huge boost for our users, so we are eager to support development however we can. Thanks in advance for any info!
