Authors can add a weighting to any assessed task in your course. A weighting determines the percentage or share of the overall course mark for a particular task.ย 

How to give a task a weighting

Once you've added a task to your course, go to the Study plan. The tasks can be given a combined weighting of up to 100% but can add up to less than 100% if the course also has an assessment outside of the course.
If a course is competency-based, weightings can be set to 0, or you can set the weightings for all assessed tasks equally.

Weightings and marking templates

A stand-alone assessed task is scored as either 0, 1 or a percentage. For instance, if you're using the complete/incomplete or correct/incorrect template, a learner will get either 0 or 1. If you are using the percentage template, a learner can get any percentage between 0% and 100%.

We then take that score and multiply it by a task's weight to get the contribution to their overall course mark. Let's take a look at an example. A course with three different assessments.
