Grading

It is worth noting that when showing grades in Moodle, you should do so either to three decimal places or only one. My opinion is that one is best since this is what the students will finally see in Evento.

Recently a student noted that in Moodle they had been given a 4.75 for some work, but when the grade was sent over to Evento the grade was only a 4.7. On inspection the grade was actually a 4.74745 which rounded to 4.75 but not 4.8 and clearly the student’s question was why do I not get a 4.8.

Thus, in future please ensure all grade book, activity and quiz scores etc. are displayed to one decimal place only.
