When creating an assessment, one of the first steps is to select a Grading Scale. This determines how the assessment will be graded.
If you need to changes the grading scale of an assessment, follow the directions below.
❗ Before you do, there are a few things to keep in mind:
This process can only be completed for draft assessments. Grading scales are unable to be changed for assigned assessments.
This process applies to Simple, Advanced, and Rubric Assessments. If you need to change the grading scale of a Plus (+) Assessment, you will need to create a new one (this is because Plus (+) Assessments can't be cloned).
Changing the Grading Scale
While you can not directly change the grading scale of an assessment, you can clone the assessment and upon cloning, will have the option to specify the grading scale of your new copy.
Step 1: In your Drafts assessments, locate the assessment you wish to change the grading scale for and select the ellipsis. Choose Clone.
Step 2: Establish the details of the clone:
Name: Rename the clone.
Type: Change the category if you'd like
Assessment: This tells you if the assessment is an Advanced, Simple, or Rubric assessment. This is unable to be changed.
🌟 Grading Scale: Select the grading scale for this new copy.
❗ Grading scales can be changed under the following circumstances:
✅ Points > Non-Points

🚫 Non-Points > Points
