1. This screencast tutorial describes how to assign letter grades to grade items in the Moodle gradebook for Moodle version 1.9.7. There are two basic approaches: enter numerical scores for a grade item but set the grade item to display the corresponding letter grade based on a number to letter grade conversion table; or define a scale that includes the letter grades that you want to display and set the grade item to use that scale instead of entering a value.
