Set Up Grading and Ranking Levels

A grading level is the grade and corresponding range of marks that a teacher can award when marking a student’s assessment or exam answer sheet. Access:

Menu > Academics > Examination > Settings > Set Grading Levels

By default the grading levels are set to be common for all the classes, but you can change this.

  1. Select the class you want.
  2. Click Add Grades.
  3. Enter the grading level name.
  4. Enter the minimum percentage score required for this particular grading level.
  5. Add a description.
  6. Click Save.

You can also edit and delete, should you ever need to make any changes.


Ranking levels help to categorise students based on the percentage scored in a subject or in a complete year. Go to:

Menu > Academics > Examination > Settings > Ranking Levels 

The fields which need to be completed, are:

  1. Select your chosen year.
  2. Enter in the name.
  3. Fill out the minimum, maximum or exact marks a student must gain to be categorised in this ranking level.
  4. Select the Marks Limit Type from three options:
  • Upper – the maximum number of marks a student can obtain for this ranking level.
  • Lower – the minimum number of marks a student can obtain for this ranking level.
  • Exact – the exact number of marks a student can obtain for this ranking level.

5. In Number of Subjects, enter the maximum, minimum or exact number of subjects a student can obtain for this ranking level.

6. Select the Subject Limit Type from the following options:

  • Upper
  • Lower
  • Exact

7. Select the consider all previous classes checkbox if you want this ranking level to be applied to all the previous classes.

8. Click Save.

Once your ranking levels have been created, you can use the arrow icons to arrange their order. This means the system will then verify and categorise students in this exact order. As an example, if you use distinction, merit and pass as your ranking levels a student who gains a distinction will technically fall under all three of these categories. However, by placing distinction above merit and pass, the system will first check for students who gained a distinction when it generates a Ranking Level Report. This means that once it has categorised the students who gained a distinction, they won’t then also be categorised into the merit or pass ranking levels.

You will also have the option to edit and delete your ranking levels, should you need to amend them.
