Moodle1.9

Location: Administration > Grades > Grade Category Settings

Grade category settings enable administrators to choose which options appear for teachers when adding/editing a grade category in their course gradebook, and their default values. Settings are applied site-wide.

There are 2 check boxes next to most features on this page. The "Force" check box eliminates any options the teacher will see. For example, the teacher will only see and be able to use the "mean of all grades" as an aggregation. The "Advanced" checkbox will hide the specific feature until the "Show advanced" button is used by the teacher. This will reduce initial menu choices for teachers but allow them to see them if they wish.

Hide forced settings

The default is to show the forced settings (see below). If these are not to be used check this box to hide them. Unchecking the "Force" setting will simply restore each category's setting to its previous state, prior to the application of the forced global setting. Administrators can thus experiment with these settings without fear of losing any specific category settings.

Aggregation settings

Select the type of aggregation method from a pulldown menu from 1 of 9 choices. However there are two check boxes which will effect this default, in addition to the Hide forced settings.

The "Force" checkbox only allows the selected aggregation method to apply. This results in switches and drop-down elements being disabled in all course gradebooks. For example, if the Aggregation Type setting is forced as "Mean", teachers will no longer have the option to change the aggregation type of each grade category separately, the option will not be there in the category edit form.


Available aggregation types

Available aggregation types setting

In Moodle 1.9.5 onwards, administrators may reduce the number of aggregation types available for teachers to use.

By default, all existing aggregation types are available (Mean of grades, Weighted mean of grades, Simple weighted mean of grades, Mean of grades (with extra credits), Median of grades, Lowest grade, Highest grade, Mode of grades, Sum of grades). This list may be reduced to only a few types, with additional types being enabled as/when teachers request them.

Note that reducing the number of aggregation types simply results in disabled aggregation types not appearing in the aggregation type dropdown menu. All existing grade category calculations remain the same, regardless of whether the aggregation type is later disabled by an administrator.

Aggregate only non-empty grades

The default is no.

Include outcomes in aggregation

The default is no.

Aggregate including subcategories

The default is no. Yes will include subcategory grades in the aggregation.

Keep the highest

Keeps only the X number of highest grades in the report

Drop the lowest

Drops the lowest X number of grades from the report.
