There are several ways to organize assignments and weight grades. For example you may want all the homework assignments averaged together in a single grade worth 10% of the final grade.

If all assignments in the category are weighted equally, select "Mean of grades." The maximum grade can be set at any number. Moodle will automatically convert the grades to percentages, so it is simplest to keep it at 100.
