Grade Weights

View this video to learn more.

You can enable all of the grading options and set grading weights for each. The total grade is based on the grading weight assigned to each option. For example, if Teachers Grading has a grading weight of 2 and Assessments Grading has a grading weight of 1, the final grade is calculated as Teachers Grading points * 2 + Assessments Grading points * 1 /3).

If only one option is enabled, 100 percent of the points of the enabled grading option go to the final grade.

To specify Grade Weights, follow these steps:

  1. Open the assignment Settings.

  2. In the Grade Weights area, click the grading options you want to enable and assign the grading weights to each option:

  • Teachers Grading - This option allows you to specify a [Grading Rubric Template](/courses/classes/#grading-rubric-templates) to use with an assignment and specify the grading weight.

    • Click Teachers Grading and enter a value in the Grading Weight field.

    • Click Rubics to assign a grading rubic template to the assignment and then choose the rubic template from the drop-down list.

  • Assessments Grading - If your assignment includes [assessments](/courses/assessments/), this option is enabled by default. If you do not want the results of the assessments to be included in the grading, disable this option.

    • Click Assessments Grading and enter a value in the Grading Weight field.

  • Script Grading - This option allows you to specify an auto-grade script that runs when the assignment is marked as complete. The default setting ensures that any grades generated from auto-graded assessments and grades from free text assessments are automatically transferred into the grading field.

  • Click Script Grading and enter a value in the Grading Weight field.

  • Click Set Custom Script Path and choose the path from the drop-down list.
