Learn@Illinois Moodle - Adding a Gradebook Category

Grade categories can be used as a strictly organizational tool (e.g., adding a category for each module) or can be used to perform calculations (e.g., dropping the lowest value or having a weighted grade category).

  1. Select Gradebook setup from the Administration block on the left side of your course page.
    Gradebook setup link

  2. Scroll down to the bottom of the page, and click Add category.


  3. Set the following:
    • Under "Grade category" -> "Category name", type in the name of your category (e.g., Quizzes).
    • Under "Aggregation", you have several options. Select one and Save.
    Category name and aggregation type

  4. Move the activities (in this example, all quizzes) into the category. For help on this, see our Putting an Activity into a Gradebook Category help page.
