      Hide

      Create an assignment and:
      set the grade to use a scale
      Set to use the advanced grading: Marking guide.
      Create a marking guide that uses less points than the max value of the scale (if 3 items in the scale the max will be 2 as we need to include 0)
      Check to make sure the warning appears after the grade is saved
      "WARNING: Your marking guide has a maximum grade of X points but the maximum grade set in your activity is X...."
      Fix the number of points to be the same as the scale and check to make sure the warning disapears.
      Set the number of points to go over the max grade allowed by the scale and check to make sure the warning re-appears.

      Set the assignment to use "points" based grading and set a maxgrade (usually set to 100 by default) - edit the marking guide to values and check to make sure appropriate warning is shown when the points in the marking guide are lower than the maxgrade, higher than the max grade and no warning when the max points in the marking guide are exactly the same as the maxgrade set.

      Description

      When using a custom scale along with a marking guide, this message is displayed:

      _WARNING: Your marking guide has a maximum grade of 45 points but the maximum grade set in your activity is -2 The maximum score set in your marking guide will be scaled to the maximum grade in the module.
      Intermediate scores will be converted respectively and rounded to the nearest available grade._

      The -2 is the ID of the custom scale that I have created.

      To replicate

      1. Create a custom scale
      2. Create a new assignment with marking guide
      3. Set a criterion with maximum mark different than 100
      4. Save your marking guide. The warning message is displayed.
