Scenario 2 - 1 Assessment and resit

Assesment

  • 1 exam 100%


Resit

  • If the final grade is lower than a 5.5, the student has to take a resit.

1. Gradebook settings

This concerns the 7 steps of the Setup Wizard. Try to execute the steps in Brightspace first, click on the items to see the solution specifically for this scenario.

1.1. Choose Grading System

Weighted or Formula?

Weighted, because there are no conditions

1.2. Final Grade Release

Calculated Final Grade of Adjusted Final Grade? 

In the scenario description, it is not specified whether the instructor wants to edit the final grades after the calculation.

So the default: Calculated Final Grade

===

Automatically release final grade?

In the description, it is not specified whether the instructor wants to automatically publish the final grade. 

So the default: NOT CHECKED


1.3. Grade Calculations

Drop ungraded items or Treat ungraded items as 0?

Treat ungraded items as 0, because there is a resit!

===

Auto update: Default = Automatically keep final grade updated.


1.4. Choose Default Grade Scheme

rounding for 0.1, 0.5 of wholes for grade items?

Is not specified in the scenario, so the default: 

Leiden Scheme_Partial Grade_Rounded off at 0.1_Pass 5.5



1.5. Managing View Display Options
  • This concerns the instructor view. 

    Default = Nr of Decimals to display: 2

1.6. Student View Display Options

Grade details

Only check Grade Scheme Symbol.


Decimals Displayed

Default = Nr of Decimals to display: 1


Characters Displayed 

Default = Nr of characters to display: 50


Final Grade Calculation

Default = unchecked. 

2. Gradebook design

Assessment:

  • exam, 100%
  • Resit: if final Grade < 5.5

Conditions: 

  • none
Step 1: Make an End Grade Category
  • Name = End grade
  • Weight = 100%
  • Distribution = Distribute weight evenly across all items
    • Number of highest non-bonus items to drop for each user = 0
    • Number of lowest non-bonus items to drop for each user = 1
      • We do this because we want the highest number to count!
  • Leave the display options as they are
  • Save and close
Step 2: Add Exam Grade item
  • Type = Numeric
  • Name = Exam
  • Category = End Grade
  • Max Points = 10
  • Weight = 100
  • Can exceed = unchecked
  • Bonus = niet aanvinken.
  • Grade Scheme = Default Scheme = Partial Grade Rounded off at 0.1, pass at 5.5.
  • Rubric = don't use
  • Display options = don't edit
  • Click Save and new
Step 3: Add Resit Grade item
  • Type = Numeric
  • Name = Resit
  • Category = End Grade
  • Max Points = 10
  • Weight = 100
  • Can exceed = unchecked
  • Bonus = niet aanvinken.
  • Grade Scheme = Default Scheme = Partial Grade Rounded off at 0.1, pass at 5.5.
  • Rubric = don't use
  • Display options = don't edit
Step 4: Edit Calculated Final Grade

Grade Scheme for Final Grade: Final Grade Rounded off at 0.5_rule 5-6_Pass 6.0

Step 5: Enter grades and check

Enter grades for one or two test students and check the calculations and conditions.
