A Grading Schema is based on percentage ranges that match scores to specific grade displays.
For example, a student’s raw numeric score on a quiz that has 100 possible points is an 88. In a Grading Schema in which a percentage of 87.5 to 89.5 equals a B+, this score results in a B+.
If the grade display Letter option is chosen, the B+ will display to the Student. Grading Schemas may be edited or added to a Course and grades will be updated to reflect the changes.
A copy of the default schema is included in all Courses. You can modify this grading schema and save changes but you also have the ability to create new Grading Schemas
