For example, there are five assessment elements in a unit, the grades of which need to be weighted as follows:

  • Three assignments which constitute 75% of the course total.  Each assignment to be equally weighted within the 75%.
  • Two quizzes which constitute 25% of the course total, equally weighted.

By default, all five items will appear in the Grader report in the same overall unit category and their grades will be aggregated by a Simple Weighted Mean of Grades.  This may not calculate the grades as expected. For an explanation of this aggregation see the FAQ 'Setting the course total in the Gradebook' (link)

To weight these assessments will require the creation of two separate categories weighted 75% and 25% and the relocation of the items into the relevant categories.
