upload score system (xls o csv)

Asked by xris_xcess on 2013-12-09

Is there another way of entering score systems? I'm trying to develop one for Chile (from 1.0 to 7.0!!!!) and it's incredibly tedious to input each one (1.0, 1.1, 1.2 ... 6.8, 6.9, 7.0).

Is there a file somewhere I can "raw edit" to speed things up? or maybe a xls or csv upload?

Also, there is no way to edit a score system after it's been created.

Your case is kind of extreme. What do those numbers indicate?

There have been a couple of posts (mainly in spanish) about the scores and averages for the Chilean school system.

Some one decided long ago, that a scores system from 1.0 to 7.0 (yes, with a decimal) was a good idea!!! Anyway, scores for various things are scored accordingly, and for end of term or year, scores for are "averaged" (sum of total scores/total scores).

SchoolTool, as far as I uderstand, averages thigs and then compares them with the selected score system's percentages and then assignes the final score.

Since I can't get SchoolTool to do regular averages, you have to create a "score system", that relates a score to a percentage. Since I need to score from 1.0 to 7.0, I need to create all the possible scores accordingly (ie, 1.1, 1.2, 1.3....6.8, 6.9, 7.0)

Up till now I have just been testing with "no score system" when adding activities to the worksheets, but that does not give you number averages on the sheets, I gives you percentages.

Please correct me if Im wrong, but at least that is what is mentioned in the other posts.

Why don't you just make them seven point assignments and give them decimal scores?

Tom:
Yes, that's what I have been testing for now, but as I say, I don't get "number" averages, I get percentages for averages.

Adding average score option to the gradebook is certainly easier than any other changes.

xris_xcess (xris-eason) said : #6

Oh?

Would you be so kind as to tell me how to do this. I have been searching around the gradebook settings and options but haven't found it yet.

Tom Hoffman (tom-hoffman) said : #7

No, I mean compared to adding a score system importer or other changes to score systems, for us to add an optional column to the gradebook is easy. You can't do it as a user at this point.

Can you help with this problem?
