Step 1 GradeCalc Options: Determine if you will be using weighted categories or not within your gradebook.
Non-Weighted Example: Teacher gives different points depending on assignment type. Assignments are worth specific points: Classwork 10 points, Quizzes 20 points, and Tests 100 points. Student grade will be earned points/possible points.
Weighted Example: All assignments are graded on a 100 point scale. Assignments are placed into categories which are weighted: Classwork 15%, Quizzes 20%, and Tests 65%.
Note: Change this setting for all sections.
Step 2 Creating Categories:
Whether you decided to create weighted or non-weighted grades, you will need to create at least 1 category that equals 100%.
Several categories that total 100%
Step 3 Creating Multiple Section Display (Optional):
The Section Groups tool allows teachers to group sections together to view them simultaneously in the Gradebook. An example of this would be the ability to see and edit grades for both gifted and general education students in the same Gradebook window.
Step 4 Assignments:
Always create assignments in Term 4: Cumulative Grade for HS.
