Moodle: Weight by Points

In this aggregation method, the weight of each grade item is determined solely by its maximum grade.  The weight field is neither displayed nor is it configurable. The only variable that can be adjusted is the maximum grade of the item.

In the example below, the student score 60 out of 80 possible points for a 75% course total.

Weight by Points aggregation with 3 grade items, max grades equal 20, 20, and 40
