Moodle 3: Gradebook: Multiplicator

General Information:

Moodle allows users to curve graded assignments using the Multiplicator tool. The Multiplicator is a factor by which all grades for a graded item will be multiplied, with a maximum value of the maximum grade.

For example, if the multiplicator is 2.0 and the maximum grade is 100, then all grades less than 50 are doubled (e.g. 35 => 70, 40 => 80, 45 => 90, etc.), and all grades 50 and above are changed to 100 (e.g. 55 => 100, 75 => 100, 85 => 100, etc.).

To Use the Grade Multiplicator Tool: 

1. Login to Moodle and open your desired course.

2. Select Gradebook Setup from the Administration panel.
