Scales are a way of evaluating or rating a students' performance. Administrators can create standard scales which are available across the site, and teachers can create custom scales just for their own course.
Step 1. Login as a Teacher or Administrator and enter the course where you’d like to add a new grade scale.
Step 2. Click on the Cog icon.
Step 3. Choose More, located at the bottom of the drop down list.
Step 4. Choose Gradebook setup.
Step 5. Choose the Scales tab.
Step 6. Click Add New Scale.
Step 7. Begin by giving the grade scale a name to identify it among other scales. To give the scale a name, click on the Name box and enter the name. This is a mandatory field.
Step 8. If you’d like to make this grade scale available to be selected as the grade option in all courses across the site, tick the Standard scale checkbox. If you’d like to restrict the grade scale to the course that you are in, do not tick this checkbox.
Step 9. In the Scale box, create your actual scale. Each item in the scale should be separated by a comma.
The scale must be in increasing order of value and must be separated by a comma (i.e)
Excellent, Very Good, Good, Average, Disappointing,
it should be entered as
Disappointing, Average, Good, Very Good, Excellent.
Step 10. Enter a detailed description in the Description box about how the scale can be used.
This description can be formatted using the Description box toolbar and will only appear to teachers and administrator, students won’t be able to see this description.
Step 11. Click Save changes
Step 12. The Custom grade scale is now be created.
Custom Grade Scales which are available across the Site will be displayed under the Standard Scales section.
Custom Grade Scales available only within a course will be displayed under the Custom scales section.
