One of the most powerful features of Moodle is the Gradebook, in terms of its ability to handle multiple grading scenarios. Moodle allows you to have multiple categories of grades (exams, essays, quizzes, etc.), and it allows you to drop lowest grades within a category, among various other features. Once you have your grading structure set up and the weights assigned, Moodle will calculate student grades for you, making it a great labor-saving device.

Because of its flexibility and multiple weighting schemes, however, the Gradebook can be difficult to learn. Rather than describing a grading scenario in detail, we will attach a more detailed grading guide that you can view and/or print out.
