    Create UQ Grading 1-7 Schema (YouTube 1m 46s)

    A Grading Schema helps convert the final marks into the grade system required by a school. When creating a Grading Schema make sure you check your school's Grading Schema - in the ECP/Assessment. 

    Policy: Grades in each course must be awarded in the numeric range of 1–7 using the grade descriptors set out in Table A, Appendix 7.1, unless clause 2 or the other grade descriptor tables in Appendix 7.1 apply. For further information, refer to section 3.7.1 of the Assessement policy and procedure.

    Warning: This grading schema is a sample only and you need to check your school policy on grade boundaries.
