Final course grades are computed using simple averaging. By default all tests and assignments are equally weighted and the resulting grade from each test and assignment element will be averaged together to arrive at the final grade.

To change the default scoring logic for a course;

  • click the Manage Courses tab
  • click on the name of the course that you want to edit
  • click the Course Element Grading tab
  • select the Override the system defaults for some or all types of course elements radio button
  • enter an Override Weight value for each element type

If you want to select which specific elements should count toward your final grade;
  • select the Override the course default for some or all elements radio button
  • enter and Override Weight value for each specific element
