How do I set up weighting in the Moodle Gradebook?


Weighting for Assignments and Gradebook Categories

    1. Locate the Admnistration block, under Course Administration and click Grades.

    2. Under the Setup tab select Gradebook setup.

    3. While viewing the categories and items, the weights of each grade item and category are visible in the weights column.
      •   The natural weight of a grade item is displayed as a percent relative to other grade items in the same category.
      •   The natural weights of remaining items are changed to compensate for items that are overridden.
      •   The natural weight of a category is displayed as a percent relative to other categories in the same course.
      •   The natural weights of remaining categories are changed to compensate for categories that are overridden.

    4. You may override the weight of a Grade item or Category by selecting the checkbox in the Weight column and by assigning a desired weight.

      • If the weights are not overridden by selecting them, then they are simply for informational purposes, to inform the instructor what the relative weights of the items are.
