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.
