Strategy 1: Items weighted by their point values

I would call this Strategy "Unweighted" since the weight of each item is 1. I guess this is what Moodle means by "simple weighted"

No Item Weight setting for categories

In my Moodle 1.9.2 I can see no Item Weight setting for grade categories (it's mentioned in the tutorial). But there is an item called Aggregation coefficient. Are these two identical?

Yes, aggregation coefficient is synonymous with "weight" in this context.Nicolas Connault 07:57, 8 September 2008 (CDT)

Simplifying the headings...

At the risk of oversimplification, wouldn't it be more reader-friendly to simplify the headings down to something like...

1. Point-based grades 2. Item-based grades 3. Category-based grades

Very unsatisfied

Somebody please make a module to give me something that's usable!

This is unusable. The only thing I can do with v1.9 grades is download into a spreadsheet.

Is there a tabular view of all assignments and their settings?

Sounds to me like you want the "Grade Report" view. Go to the course, choose "Grades" from the Admin menu. From the drop-down menu "Choose an action..." choose "Grader report". --Donna Hrynkiw 13:32, 9 December 2008 (CST)

How in the world is a teacher supposed to view/edit a summary of the assignment settings?

Yeah, it can be quite frustrating to find the particular setting you want/need to change, can't it? Use the "Turn editing on/off" button to either just view the assignments and grades, or to edit them. Edit the grade settings for an assignment (or category of assignments) using the edit icon in the "Controls" row, just below the assignment name. Edit the assignment itself by clicking on the assignment name and then "Update this (whatever)" button. You can add/remove utility icons from the display using the "Show/Hide" links across the top of the page. --Donna Hrynkiw 13:32, 9 December 2008 (CST)

Somebody has gone crazy with icons and point-click on everything to see what's hidden beneath each icon!

Search terms?

Could search terms be added for "weighting" or "weight grades" so that this page is findable? I am not sure if categories are equivalent to keywords, and so did not add...
