This video and document will explain how you can use the colour coding in the Grade Center to give you a quick overview of your students' achievements with regards to grades.
When you create groups and select the gradable tools, it will create a column for each group in the Grade Center, i.e. if you have 20 groups and you are going to use a gradable wiki, in the Full Grade Center there will be 20 columns called Group# wiki. This document explain how you manage the Grade Center with so many group columns.
When you create tests, ensure that you select the option to display this column in the Grade Center otherwise it will not reflect and you cannot use it in any Grade Center calculations. Refer to this document for screen caps of what you need to switch on to display the column in the Grade Center.
The Total column is a type of calculated column that generates a grade based on the cumulative points earned, related to the points allowed. You can select which columns and categories are included in a Total column's calculation. When creating a Total column, you can include other calculated columns. A Total column is created by default and appears in all courses. This default Total column is also set as the external grade (the column with the green icon next to it).
An external column is used on the Global navigation where the students can view a summary of their grades as well as on the Notifications Dashboard (Report Card module) and on a Module Page within a Course where you select the Report Card module to display.
At UP we are working towards a semester mark. Therefore it will be better to change the Semester Mark column to be Set as the External grade. This document would explain how to Set another column in the Grade Center as the External grade. You may delete the Total column after you selected another column to be the external grade.
