Configuring grades and assessments
In addition to learning per se, assessment is a critical requirement in educational settings. Moodle offers a wide range of tools to facilitate formative, interim, and summative assessments and handles the inevitable grades that go with it.
In this section, we will cover the administrative elements of the gradebook before we deal with assessments, where we will cover how to configure assignments, quizzes and the question bank, and SCORM packages.
Configuring grades and the gradebook
The gradebook is one of the most important constructs in any LMS, and Moodle is no exception. The Moodle gradebook is a powerful, flexible, and accurate grade management system. Its flexibility and customizability result in a very high degree of complexity. Consequently, a considerable number of administrative settings are at your disposal that affect how teachers, trainers, and assessors use grades throughout the system.
