How do I customize my Grading Scale?

By default, you will find that Markboard provides a default grading scale. However, you can change the default grading scale to your liking. If you want to change or create an entirely new custom set grading scale, you can do so by clicking the “Change Scale” button.


From the window that appears, you can either apply a pre-existing grading scale or create an entirely new one. Note that you can filter this list of existing grading scales by the Chalk official set, your own custom set or a school set (if you have access to it).


If you chose to create a new custom grading scale, you will be able to customise the grading scale from the editing window. Simply click on a cell in the table to start editing the levels/grade range values.

Please note that for the levels/letter grade names, you can enter up to a maximum of four characters. As for the value ranges, please make sure that the number that you are inputting is within a 0 - 100 range. (Note that these numerical values represent the Minimum Values of each grade range.)


You can also insert in additional rows to create more levels/grade ranges. To do so, click the "Add New Row" button found below the table. To delete a row, click the trash icon next to each row. 


When you are done, make sure to give the grading scale a name and click on "Create & Apply New Grading Scale"!
