How do I create a Grading Scale in Assessment?

This is part of our Assessment Solution. You will not have this option if you are a free user**

As an admin, you can provide your school with a common grading scale to ensure that marks are aligned for all students. A grading scale can be set as the default for a semester, and then further customized by subject. This article will guide you on how to create a grading scale.

Step 1:

Select your Settings in Admin. This may be on the side menu, as shown in the screenshot below, or within your School or Institutions tab.

Step 2:

Select Grading Scales within your Settings options.  

Step 3:

On this screen, you will see a semester dropdown and the assigned grading scale for that semester. Click on Manage Scales.

Step 4:

On the left, you will see a list of grading scales. You can filter this list by the Chalk official set, your own custom set or a school set. On the right is a preview of the grading scale values of your selected scale. Select the scale you want to use as a template, then click Create New From Template.

Step 5: 

Here you will see the template. Click on a cell in the table to start editing the levels/grade range values.

You can enter up to a maximum of four characters for the levels/letter grade names. For the value ranges, please ensure that the numbers that you are inputting are within a 0 - 100 range.

Note: that these numerical values represent the Minimum Values of each grade range. 

You can also insert in additional rows to create more levels/grade ranges. To do so, click the Add New Grade Row button found below the table. To delete a row, click the trash icon next to each row.

Step 6:

Provide a grading scale ID for your scale. A grading scale ID is the code necessary if you want to use the CSV data sync for classlists (click here for more info). This ID allows you to assign a grading scale to a classlist.

Step 7:

Once you’re done, click on Save Grading Scale in the top right-hand corner.

Note: This does not automatically apply the grading scale to your semester or classlist. Rea the following articles for more information:
