There are 4 Calculated Column options to select from in the Grade Center. By default, you are provided a Weighted Total and Total column. You may remove the column that you do not need to use for calculating student grades. If you accidentally remove a Calculated Column, you can always re-add it by going to the Full Grade Center and selecting "Create Calculated Column."
This article will provide you with an explanation of each of the Calculated Column options.
|1. Scroll down to Course Management and click Grade Center. Then click Full Grade Center.||
|2. Click Create Calculated Column.||
3. Determine what kind of Calculated Column you want to add to your Grade Center:
Example: Column 1 % + Column 2 % + Column 3 % + Column 4 % = % earned ÷ 4 columns = Average percentage score
Values: 9/10, 4/5, 3/3
Percentage Equivalents: 90.0000%, 80.0000%, 100.0000%
Example: Column 1 points earned + Column 2 points earned + Column 3 points earned + Column 4 point earned = Total points earned out of total points possible
Example: Make sure all assessments in your course are given the correct Category. For example, all Quizzes should have the Category of Quiz associated with it. Since Quizzes are worth 15% of a students' overall grade, you will need to add the Quiz Category to your Weighted Total column.
