Moodle Teacher Guide: Gradebook Scales

This guide offers information, advice and resources on how to create an effective online course.

Creating scales in the gradebook

To customize the grading scales in the Gradebook, click on Course Administration/Grades.

From the menu at the top, or the dropdown menu, select Scales/View.

Moodle provides standard scales, but you can create your own by clicking on Add a new scale at the bottom right.

  • Name the scale
  • In the Scale box, list the values, separated by a comma. For example, Disappointing, Not good enough, Average, Good, Very good, Excellent

When you have an assignment or forum that needs to be graded, your newly made Scale will be available in a dropdown menu as a selection.
