This article will explain you how to setup the Configurable Grading functionality.

With this feature, you can decide how you want to weigh certain criteria of the assignment in the total grade. You can manually set it up by filling in the percentages in the functionality. As you can see below, this feature provides you with the option to fill in a certain value belonging to a specific category. It is not obligatory to fill in all categories.

The content of the Configurable Grading can be linked to the rubric (beta, feature flagged) in the assignment. 

Below you can see the Configurable Grading feature filled in. You can manually add percentages to certain categories. As you can see, the 60% for the 'ratings received on work in total' is divided over the three items of the rubric in the assignment. In the figure, each item is awarded with a different weight, with grammar counting for 30pp (for example). The total grading needs to add up to 100%. 

Below you can see the functionality in action with student activity. For example, under the category name of the rubric 'Following Procedure', you see that there are 20 pp to be obtained - as filled in by the teacher in the figure above. Depending on how students get rated, they can score 0 - 20 points on this category.

In addition to this you have the option to implement a pass/fail grade to an assignment. By clicking on 'settings' a threshold can be set, with the required amount of points in order to get a passing grade. This threshold can be adjusted in the future.

Before publishing the grades, it will become visible for the students to see the amount needed to pass the assignment. Once published, students will see whether they passed, along with the normal breakdown of their grade. Teachers will be provided with an overview of the scores as normal, along with a column showing whether the student passed or failed the assignment.

This concludes the Setting up Configurable Grading tutorial.
