On-Line Grades

Concepts – Demo with Excel

·        Gradable items (tests, assignments, quizzes, attendance… )

·        Categories – Groups of gradeable items

·        Each category has a final “grade” – a weighted average of the grades of the gradable items in that category

·        The students final grade is a weighted average of the Categories

Steps:

1.     Create Categories  and assign a “weight” (e.g. 30% ) to each category.  Ideally weights add to 100%

2.     Create gradable items.  Assign each item to a category and assign weight (eg. 5%) to each category to be used within that category.    NOTE: gradable items can be created later in the semester and added to a category

3.     Enter grades for a gradable item
