Grading
When you click the Grading link, the screen jumps to the section of the screen showing the Categories and Grading Scale used in the class. If your teacher has defined Grading Periods with weights, the Grading Periods and their weights are also shown.

Generally, your overall grade is based on the points you received divided by points possible. However, if your teacher uses category weights or grading period weights, the overall grade is adjusted based on the weights assigned.

Category Weights
If your teacher has assigned weights to the categories, your grade is computed based on your percentage in each category multiplied by the weight of the category as demonstrated in the example below:

Category

Weight

Homework80%
Tests20%

Example of a grade calculation for the Category Weight scenario described above.
Student: John Jones
Homework percentage: 95
Tests percentage: 80
Overall Grade Calculation: (95 * 0.8) + (80 * 0.2) = 92%

If scores have not been recorded in some of the grading periods your teacher has defined, the weights of the unscored grading periods are automatically applied to the grading periods that have recorded scores.
Scores To Drop
The Scores To Drop column indicates the number of lowest scores that are automatically dropped when computing your grade in the category. For example, if the teacher entered "2" in the Scores To Drop column of a category, your two lowest scores in the category would be ignored when your percentage is computed.

Grading Period Weights
If your teacher has defined Grading Periods and has assigned weights to the Grading Periods, your overall grade is computed based on your percentage in each grading period multiplied by the weight of the grading period as demonstrated in the example below:

Period

Title

Start Date

End Date

60%

2. Progress Report Two 03/02/2000 06/30/2000 40%

Example of an overall grade calculation for the Grading Period Weight scenario described above.
Student: John Jones
Progress Report One Percentage: 100
Progress Report Two Percentage: 80
Overall Grade Calculation: (100 * 0.6) + (80 * 0.4) = 92%

If scores have not been recorded in some of the grading periods your teacher has defined, the weights of the unscored grading periods are automatically applied to the grading periods that have recorded scores.
