Real calculus examples: grading tests

In this example we'll use iDoceo to provide scores automatically based on a test result.

In our example we'll use a sample test with 16 questions, being 0 the lowest achievable grade, and 16 the highest.


Our sample data to work with:


The first step is to asign the Max "Total grade points" to our column, in our example will be 16, secondly we will apply a "Quick conversion" to the desired grade A to F in our first example.

The column is ready to acept scores entry.

The score is automatically converted to de selected grade instanly.

The same example now with a 100% grading

The only diference to obtain the result of the score in a 0-100% grade is to select the quick conversion shown below.

The result will be now this :

!-- these instructions . We'll call our new grade test over 16.

Now, lets assign this grade type to our column , tap&hold on the columns' header, edit ,and select grade type.

And now the final step, our test score. We'll add a new column, with the editor type Calculus and the grade type we want to translate the score to. For example a text grade from A to F , or a percent (numeric grade from 0 to 100). This is explained in detail here. In our calculation there will be a single column, its configuration, should look like the image.

And the result will look like this (note that our A to F grade might have different weights):

Or like this , if we assign a grade type from 0 to 100 to our calculation column (just change its grade type):
