The following list provides answers to the most common questions asked by instructors regarding the Moodle Gradebook.

I have defined letter grades in Moodle, but the percentages are not rounding correctly.

Moodle will calculate letter-based grades (used in conjunction with the Letters option in the gradebook) on the real percentage of the grade to three decimal points. You cannot override or change the grade boundaries to contain decimal points. Moodle will round for display purposes, but not when calculating the letter grade.

How do I see the individual course sections in the gradebook of a Moodle Meta course?

After setting up your meta course, go to the Administration Block and select Settings. Next, scroll down to the section titled Groups. Select Separate Groups from the drop-down menu next to Group Mode. Go to the bottom of the screen and select Save Changes. In twenty-four hours, you will be able to see the individual course sections in a drop-down menu at the top of the gradebook. By selecting a section, you will be able to view just that section in the gradebook.

My Students can not see the gradebook?

For the students to be able to see their grades in the course two properties need set. 

1.  In the Administration Block select Settings.  Next make sure the "Show Gradebook to Students" is set to yes.  Save the settings.

2.  The other reason students may not see their grades is because the course total column is hidden.  Select the Categories and Items tab in the Gradebook.  Make sure the eyeball icon beside course total is opened.  If it is not click it to show the course total column.
