Once in these pages the dropdown bar allows you to toggle between different areas of the gradebook.
It is also worth noting that although there is a ‘Gradebook settings’ button on the quick access panel, this does not direct to the gradebook but instead just gives options for changing the visibility of all the gradebook activities.
The Gradebook Setup Page
This page is where the management of weightings can be completed as well as organisation of activities. Activities can be placed into relevant categories, such as the Strathclyde template of: Standard Activities, Formative and Administrative, with Standard Activities being the only category that will count towards a student’s overall grade. More categories can be added within this for exams, coursework and so on. See here for instruction on this.
Categories and grade items can be weighted by inputting into the box shown. Note that these values can be input in a variety of ways, such as 20%, 20, 0.2 and Myplace will read them all the same way.
If you have arranged your activities into categories, there are some features that can be used to change how they are viewed in the grader report. For example, in the picture you can see the icon beside ‘Coursework’ which indicates to switch to ‘Full View’ and the icon beside ‘Practical’ which is for switching to aggregate view.
We can now see how the views change. For ‘Coursework’, a total is added. For ‘Practical’, just the total is shown instead of each activity. This can help to simplify the view if you have a lot of activities.
