Moodle Gradebook Aggregation Types

Aggregation Types

Aggregation determines how grades in a category are combined, such as:

  • Mean of grades – the sum of all grades divided by the total number of grades
  • Weighted mean of grades
  • Median of grades – the middle grade when grades are arranged in order of size
  • Lowest grade
  • Highest grade
  • Mode of grades – the grade that occurs the most frequently
  • Natural – the sum of all grade values scaled by weight

An aggregation type can be set for any of your categories.
