I am very used to using percentages for marking (the mythical 100 point scale) but see the benefits of a less granular approach and would like to explore a simple distinction, merit, pass, refer system but my worry is how to deal with modules with several assignments. For example if someone gets a pass for something weighted 20% and then a merit for the other assignments, how do they get an overall grade that represents the total? I am used to the idea – easy with numbers- of a second (better) assignment raising the overall mark for the module. Does anyone have some neat resolution, that doesn’t fall back on a ghostly 100 point scale in the background, to what must be a common problem.
