4.12. My gradebook totals are showing total points and not percentages.

This issue is often caused by the gradebook aggregation being set to the wrong type.  By default "simple weighted mean of grades" will be setup for new courses.  If for some reason your moodle gradebook is not showing a percentage or an incorrect percentage calculation the aggregation setting may need to be changed.


Steps to change grade book aggregation:

  1. Enter course.
  2. Navigate to "Gradebook setup" from the course administration block.

    Moodle Administration - Gradebook setup

  3. Under the main gradebook category (top right) select edit => edit settings.

    Gradebook setup - edit settings

  4. Change the drop down menu from to "Simple Weighted Mean of grades.

    Aggregation - simple weighted mean of grades

  5. You may also want to check that the min and max grade for the category is 0 and 100.  This will allow the percentages to be calculated correctly.
