Gradebook Set Up

There are three main ways that you can set up Gradebook calculations:

Option 1 - Create columns and enter points. The Gradebook will add all columns to give you a total number of points for the course.

Option 2 - Create weighted columns and grade using percentages. The Gradebook will calculate the final grade for you. This would be used if you have single items that make up a certain percentage of the grade. For example, the course project is 40% of the grade, the mid-term exam is 25% of the grade and the final exam is 35% of the grade.

Option 3 - Create weighted categories, place columns within the categories and enter points. This would be used if you have several items under one category. For example, you assign 15 quizzes during the semester and the total of those quizzes will make up 15% of the grade. There are 5 assignments and the total of those assignments will make up 30% of the grade, etc.

NOTE: When you choose the weighted categories option, in the student's view of the Gradebook, they will see the categories and the weight of each category.

Gradebook will not drop the lowest score from a category, nor will it calculate extra credit. For these options, use Gradebook 2, or use Excel.

Option 1 - Create Columns and Enter Points

You will now create the columns for your grade data. Be aware that if you are creating graded Assignments and/or graded Tests & Quizzes and/or Assessments, those tools will automatically create Gradebook columns. You do not need to create columns for those items. If you are creating graded Discussions or need columns for any other grade entry, you will make those items within the Gradebook.

Option 2 - Create Weighted Columns and Grade Using Percentages

You will now create the columns for your grade data. Be aware that if you are creating graded Assignments and/or graded Tests & Quizzes and/or Assessments, those tools will automatically create Gradebook columns. You do not need to create columns for those items. If you are creating graded Discussions or need columns for any other grade entry, you will make those items within the Gradebook.

Option 3 - Create Weighted Categories and Grade Using Points

You will now create the columns for your grade data. Be aware that if you are creating graded Assignments and/or graded Tests & Quizzes and/or Assessments, those tools will automatically create Gradebook columns. You do not need to create columns for those items. If you are creating graded Discussions or need columns for any other grade entry, you will make those items within the Gradebook.
