Grade Settings are used to assigned the results a student has attained for a completed Course.
Now that RIO University has been established, we need to lay a foundation of Grade Settings to be used hereinafter for other possible Academic Programs as well.
For example, RIO University has a grading system where students will have a score range for their exam from 0 to 100. Those scores will have several score range brackets where a grade point value of 0, 4, 5, 6, 7 can be derived from. We can then assign values to those brackets like High Distinction, Distinction, Credit, etc.
Below is a table for visualization.
|Grade Range||Grade Points||Grade Result||Grade Value|
|85 - 100||7||Pass||HD - High Distinction
|75 - 84.9||6||Pass||D - Distinction
|65 - 74.9||5||Pass||CR - Credit
|50 - 64.9||4||Pass||PS - Pass
|0 - 49.9||0||Fail||
FL - Fail
Note: It is important to include decimals when defining the range, such as 75 - 84.9.
This is to cover cases where a student's grade (i.e. 84.3) might be between 2 Grade Ranges (75 - 84 and 85 - 100).
And this will have to be transferred into the data template, like such:
|Name||The code name applicable to the Grade Setting.|
|Grade Setting Group Ext ID||The Educational Institution this Grade Setting belongs to.|
|University Department Ext ID||The University Department this Grade Setting belongs to.|
