A grade scheme is a way of organizing users’ performances on grade items into levels of achievement. A grade scheme can include any number of achievement levels, with each achievement level having a numeric value, letter, or text description to represent it.
In order to make changes to the default letter grade scheme, you will first have to make a copy of it. The following documentation demonstrates how to create a custom grade scheme in D2L based on CU’s default “Letter Grades” scheme.
*Note: In order to upload your course’s final grades into the Registrar's web grading system, a Letter Grades scheme is necessary. To learn more about exporting final grades for web grading please visit the Export Grades for Web Grading tutorial.
Use the Ranges section to change the Symbol, Start %, Color, and Assigned Value for each achievement level.
Edit these parameters as desired to meet the specifications of your custom scheme. When you are finished modifying your grade scheme, click Save and Close.
You can also assign a scheme to an individual grade item from the Edit Grade Item screen. It is possible to create multiple grade schemes and apply them to individual grade items as desired.
