Point Equivalence

Definition overview

1 Definition

A Point Equivalence is used when pieces of Assessment are graded rather than marked. Point Equivalences are numerical values that are linked to the Grades assigned to pieces of Assessment. The Final Grades of Students enrolled in Courses where Assessment Items are graded are calculated by combining these point equivalences with the weightings attached to those pieces of Assessment.
