Adding a Grade Scale

Customize a grading scale for your assessments with these simple steps.

Navigate to the Gradebook menu on the left side of the screen, then, under Setup, select Grade Scales. Then, click on Add Grade Scale button on the right side of the screen. And:

Enter the Name for the Grade scale, for example, beginner test.
Select the Type of Grade scale,


For Numeric

Enter the Lowest and Highest grades.
For example, The lowest numeric value could be 0, and the highest numeric value could be 100. This could vary depending on your preference.

⚠️ The highest grade would represent the total score for grading purposes. If you are using sections, you should decide how to divide the total score between each section. Essentially, you need to determine the highest possible grade for each section.

Add the Passing number, which is the lowest mark a student can get for passing. Example: If the highest grade is 100, then the passing mark could be 35 or 40.
You can add the Prefix or Suffix symbol like a percentage(%).
Lastly, add a Description (optional), and click save.

For Non-numeric

Enter the Grade, It could be A, A+, or S according to your preference. You can add more grades by clicking on the Add grade button.
Add the Weight of the grade.
To explain further, the numeric number would be equivalent to each grade; the higher the weight, the higher the grade will be. For example, if A+ is the highest grade with 5 as the weight, then the next grades would be A as 4, B as 3, C as 2, D as 1…
Add the Lowest grade that is required for a student to pass.
Choose if you’d like the Rounding option to be Up or Down. For example, if it’s rounding up, then, 8.459 (more than 5) becomes 8.46 and if rounding down, then, 8.322 (less than 5) is 8.32.
Lastly, add a Description (optional), and click save.
