Some instructors want to give weights to grade items or “groups” of items.
- Following the directions above, select “Weighted Mean of Grades” for the aggregation of your class.
- Depending on the format of your assignments, you can either create categories with a weight or individual items. By creating weighted categories, you are able to cluster assignments together to represent a weight in your class. For example, you may have something similar to the following for your grading breakdown:
- Homework – 25%
- Assignments – 25%
- Attendance – 10%
- Exams – 40%
Each one of the above mentioned would be categories that would house the assignments intended to be measured for that particular topic. In the following example, I have made my homework assignments worth 40% of the student’s course grade while exams will contribute 60% to the overall course grade. Notice that these are FOLDERS not actual grade items.
