Site defaults

Grade item settings, accessed from Site administration>Grades>Grade item settings, are the various settings that the administrator is able to edit for all gradebooks used by teachers. These settings will change what items are displayed for each grade. As administrator, you would turn on or off various settings and the teacher would input the actual data.

Grade display type

This is the type of grade that is to be shown for each individual grade. Different school districts use different grading systems so this can be changed to suit your district.

  • Real - Grade from minimum to maximum range indicating total points received. Default from 0-100 but may be arbitrary.
  • Percentage - Grade from 0 - 100% indicating the total points received divided by maximum possible amount times 100.
  • Letter- Grade in the form of a letter representing a range of percentages.

Overall decimal points

This setting is for display purposes only. Grade calculations are made with an accuracy of 5 decimal places and grade letters, if used, are assigned accordingly.

If rounding of grades in grade calculations is required, the round(number, count) function may be used.
