'grading individual activities' Grade_items - OU, Aug 10, 1.9 VI, good breakdown (Activity, Outcome, Manual) but need to clear up & offer examples (!) Grade_calculations - O, Dec 10, averages, sums, weightings ... link to example(s) would be good Edit_grade_calculation re-directed to Grade_calculations but not sure if that's where I'd go for editing...
I was researching outcomes and got here. This page needs some tender care for 2.x. It is all over the place talking about gradebook, categories, and APIs. I was trying to redefine the menu path buried in "Activity based grade items" and felt helpless and lost in my Settings > Grade administration menu system when I clicked on grades. Only one of many points. I suspect that all we need is a simple definition and I do not think mine is correct. For example I wanted to see an Outcome report and this page says a grade item can be an outcome or a summary of grades. Thus a grade item is indeed a measurement of something. It shows up as a column in the grade report according to its words. This page explains too much. I do use grades in quizzes on a regular basis. So I will stop complaining and come back to this and conquer it.--chris collman 21:39, 6 September 2011 (WST)
