Use Category Weighting

You can calculate students' overall grades by weighting activity categories like homework, quizzes, labs, and tests. When you use category weighting, category averages are calculated first and each category average counts as a percentage of the overall grade.

  1. In the toolbar, click Progress.
  2. Click the Settings tab.
  3. Turn on Category Weighting.
  4. Enter the weight for each category.

    Each category weight must be an integer from 0 to 100. The total for all categories must be 100.

  5. Click Save.
