Learn@Illinois Moodle - Editing Maximum Grades

Learn how to edit the point totals in assignments and activities. The points that an activity is worth is called the "Maximum grade" in Moodle. The maximum grades (i.e. point values) of activities must be edited in the activity and cannot be edited directly in the gradebook.
