Add a Grade Item


When you add any graded item (such as an Assignment or Quiz) to a course, Moodle automatically adds a corresponding grade item (column) to the gradebook.
You can also create grade items (columns) not linked to Moodle activities by adding them manually on the Gradebook setup page.

Manually Add a Grade Item

  1. On your course page, click the settings gear wheel in the top right >> Gradebook Setup. The gradebook will open to the Gradebook setup page.
  2. Scroll to the bottom of the page and click Add grade item. The New grade item page will open.
  3. In the Item name field, enter a name for the column. Use short, alphanumeric names; do not use special characters, commas, ampersands, or quotes.
  4. In the Grade type field, select a type for the grade item.
    • Value: A numerical value with a maximum and minimum
    • Scale: Rate from a list of preset values (note: the numeric value corresponding to different scale tiers do not necessarily align intuitively).
    • Text feedback only: Written feedback only; no numerical or aggregated value.
    • Letter: A letter value as defined by the instructor.
  5. In the Maximum grade field, set the maximum point value for the grade item.
  6. When finished, click Save changes.
