Understanding grade schemes

Grade schemes

A grade scheme is a way of organizing users’ performances on grade items into levels of achievement. A grade scheme can include any number of achievement levels. Each achievement level has its own range of acceptable grades and a symbol, such as a numeric value, letter, or text description, to represent it. You can create your own grade schemes or use schemes set up by your organization.

Grade scheme Example
Letter F, D, C, B, A, A+
Numeric 2.0, 2.5, 3.0, 3.5, 4.0
Text Below Expectations, Meets Expectations, Exceeds Expectations
