    • Testing Instructions:
      Hide
      1. Create course with both new and old Assignment modules using advanced grading method "Rubrics", and also new and old Assignment modules using advanced grading method "Marking guide".
      2. In each module create rubric or guide so it uses different grading range than module. For example, in rubric student may get 1 out of maximum 3 points and this has to be mapped to 0-100 grade.
      3. Grade student and make sure the grade is rounded and properly displayed in old Assignment module (mod_assignment) and is diplayed as decimal in new Assignment module (mod_assign).
      4. Use scale for grading in new Assignment module and make sure the grade is rounded now. For example, if scale is ("Bad", "Average", "Good"), the grading method does not return "Bad-and-a-half".

      Backward-compatibility:

      1. Ideally install one of the plugins from https://moodle.org/plugins/browse.php?list=category&id=39 (hopefully they work on 2.5 maybe with some warnings about setType).
      2. Create new assignment module and choose this grading method.
      3. Make sure that grades are rounded.

      Description

      Currently the 2.2.3 rubric grading method only posts integer grades. It seems that if the quiz module can return decimal grades, then the rubric grading method should also be able to return decimal grades. The calculation is performed automatically, not manually entered by the instructor (as with the dropdowns in the assignment grading interface). My students frequently ask why they cannot get the fractional point totals, as this could make a difference when aggregated at the end of the course.
