Moodle grades consist of three main components.
- Grade Items – quizzes, assignments, and any other activity that can earn a grade
- Grade Categories – groups for organizing similar grade items
- Grades – values you assign for each student’s completed grade item
See the moodle.org Grade Item article for more information about grade items settings, including manually and automatically produced grade items, maximum and minimum grades, grade to pass, grade types, grade display, and grade locks.
