Using Grade Centre Grading Schemas

A Grading Schema allows instructors to map score percentage ranges to specific grade displays. For example a score between 70% and 100% could be mapped to the grade of “Pass”.

Once a Grading Schema has been set up, it may be applied to a Grade Centre column when you create a new one, or modify an existing one.

To create a Grading Schema follow these instructions.
