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.
  • 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.
