“The process of applying standardized measurements of varying levels of achievement in a course”
Grades are used to identify the results students have obtained in their courses. The mark (grade) (0-100) is recorded within the Enrollment records (Course connection object) either manually or through an integration from an LMS system. This system will then search for the relevant grade setting by using the grade entered to group within a grade range and record the:
- Grade Value (e.g. High Distinctions)
- Grade Points (e.g. 7)
- Grade Result (Pass/Fail)
You can define a different grading system for different programs in RIO Education. The grades will be applied to the Students results associated with the respective Program. The system will take then take the lowest level record it finds (e.g Academic program, then Department, then Institution). This allows for a flexible grading system when a default grading scheme at an Institution level can be set, but also overwritten for a particular Program.
Grades can be defined at the following level:
- Educational Institution – this means all the results are graded based on the default grade settings available at the Educational Institution level.
- University Department – this means the results are graded based on the default grade settings available at the University Department level.
- Academic Program – this means the results are graded based on the default grade settings available at the Academic Program level.
In this example, we will setup the grading system for the Master of Leadership program
