Moodle 3.0, 3.2: Simple Direct Grading Method of Assignments
Applies to: Moodle 2.8, 3.0, 3.2
When configuring an assignment, Simple Direct Grading is one of the Grading Method choices. Simple grading is the choice for when the grader is intending to enter a score (points) or a non-numeric scale for the completed task. Simple Direct Grading does not make use of a Moodle grading rubric or grading guide. The instructor would use their own method of determining the assignment score.
The Simple Grading method has three options for grading the activity:
None - A corresponding column will be created in the Gradebook, but there will be no area to enter a score.
Points - You determine the maximum value in the assignment settings. The minimum will always be zero.
Scale - A non-numeric scale will be used for the gradebook score.
The University's Moodle installation has several pre-set scales ready for use.
You can also create your own from within the gradebook.
Note: Scales are text only and Moodle cannot determine their value. Only score grading can be used to calculate points. See Use a Scale for Grading Activities for more information
