I came across this discussion and had a similar question. If I'm using a 4.0 grading scale (A = 4.0, A- = 3.7, and so forth), how do you create a grading schema with that approach? Do I have to convert all of the grade ranges into multples of 100? I've tried several times using the grade ranges that I normally use, and the system (for whatever reason) doesn't like that approach.
Thank you for any assistance you can provide. Michael Bitzer
It looks like your school is using Blackboard 9.1, not CE/Vista, so you probably should look and post over in the 9.1 Faculty and Designers area (http://discussions.blackboard.com/forums/66.aspx) rather than this one.
But as has been mentioned before, a grading schema is a mapping from a particular percentage range between 0-100% (points awarded / points possible) to a particular label. There's no way to translate directly from "A" to "4". However, you can have both a "Letter" and a "4-point scale" schema, both based on the same percentage ranges, and display either or both (one as primary and one as secondary).
Does that help?
