In this type of evaluation, when creating an assignment, the teacher inputs the maximum number of points students can gain. The maximum number of points is considered the weight of the assignment (test/exam) as well. Meaning, a 25 point test has lower weight (half the weight) than a 50 point test.
Teacher inputs the number of points awarded to the students into the assignment column.
Students see the ratio of number of points gained to the maximum possible number of points.
The final grade is computed from a ratio of points gained to the maximum number of points.
Advantages of "Points" evaluation type:
b) Evaluation by points can be easily combined with bonus points. Just create an assignment with 0 maximum number of points. All points the students gain are bonus points. It is also possible to gain 28 points out of 25 in a test, if the student answered bonus questions.
c) It is easy for the students to determine how many points they need to gain if they know the required number of points for their final grade in advance.
EduPage also offers you evaluation by points with informative grade. This type of evaluation works the same way as evaluation by points, but it displays an informative grade. The average is computed from points, not the grades.
If you prefer evaluation with equal weight for all tests no matter what the number of points is, select Evaluation type "Percentages computed from point value"
