From Autumn 2017/18 the University updated the mark scale for undergraduate modules. Find out more on the Teaching Quality website.
Grade Letters - The site-wide default letters match the 20 point marking scale. For example, a score of 86% is a 'High 1st' according to the 17 point marking scale, whereas, a score of 86% is an 'Upper Mid 1st' in the 20 point marking scale. The student will see 'Upper Mid 1st' displayed in the Gradebook.
In a Moodle module, enter the Gradebook by clicking on Grades in left-hand menu. From the dropdown select View under Letters. Click Edit Grade letters. If Override site defaults is ticked, you are not using the default site-wide grade letters.
Below is a screenshot of the Moodle Gradebook a member of staff sees when letters have been used.

Scales - A new scale, used for qualitative use only, has been created in Moodle to match the 20 point marking scale.
