Grade types: Numerical scores

What is a grade type and what is it for?

When using iDoceo's averages or calculating percentages you should assign a grade type -or at least a max score - to your columns
The grade type will allow iDoceo to mix columns with different types (numerical,text) and obtain a result taking into account all of its singularities.
Additionally, a grade type will let you configure roundings, assign values to icons or apply colours automatically to a cell based on its contents.

The grade type is assigned here:

  • Double tap on the header to alter a single column
  • or tap on the Tools/Spanner > Columns to modify several columns at once.

If you do not need any rounding, icon values or automatic colours, assigning a max score (shown below) should be the preferred method.

How to create your own grade types

From the grade book view, double tap on a header > Grade type > Edit > New grade type


Basic configuration of a numerical score


Maximum value: The best possible score. If converted into a percent, this value would mean 100%

Minimum value: This typically is 0 on all types.

Cut on Max and Min will limit (internally) the value taken into account on calculations.
In our example, if 'Cut on Max. value' was set, a score of 200 would in effect be considered as 150
