How do I set the grading scale for a class?

The Gradebook allows you to set a specific grading scale for an individual class, allowing you to customize grading between your classes. This is a quick guide on how to do this.

Note: If you haven't yet, you will need to create a scale first. Click here for more info.

Step 1:

Open the Gradebook menu at the top of the page, scroll down to Settings, then click Global Grading.

Step 2:

Click on Manage Scales.

Note: If your school subscribes to our Assessment solution, you may see a warning if your grading scale is not aligned with the grading scale set by the school for that class. Click here to learn how to reset your scale to the school-provided scale.

Step 3:

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 (if you have access to it). On the right is a preview of the grading scale values of your selected scale. Select the scale you want to use, then click on Apply Scale.

Step 4:

A modal will pop up, asking you to confirm that this is the scale you want to use for your class. Click on Yes, Apply Scale if everything looks good.
