15-01-02.Setting of Grades

In the setting of grades, you can set weights for grades of each content in “Gradebook setup.”
In addition, you can add your own grading items on the gradebook.

Weights setting

You can set weights by each content.
The default value is “0.0”, which will not be reflected in the “Course Total” at this point. If you set it to “1” for all content and save it, it will all have the same specific gravity and will be reflected in the “Course Total” based on the grade of each content.

In the following example, the assignment and quiz grades are twice as heavy as the attendance grades.
In the “Weight” column, enter “Assignment sample” = 2, “Quiz sample” = 2, “Attendance sample” = 1, and click [Save changes].

When the grader report is displayed, the value of the total grade of the course (converted to 100 points) changes according to the weight. For example, it is assumed that “Student Taro 1” got “Assignment sample” = 100 points, “Quiz sample” = 80 points, “Attendance sample” = 60 points.
Then, Assignment sample : Quiz sample : Attendance sample = 2:2:1,
Thus 40 points (100 *2/5) + 32 points (80*2/5) + 12 points (60*1/5) = 84 points is the grade of the entire course.

Only if each piece of content has a “grade” in it, will it be included in the formula for calculating the course total. Therefore, be sure to enter a grade of “0” or higher for each piece of content you want to include in the grading formulas, and include a grade of Please note that if you leave a “-” mark in the assignment, it will not be included in the calculation. If you do not submit the assignment and leave it at “-“, it will not be included in the calculation(*).
Specifically, Student Taro 2 has a score of 40 on the “Teaching Field Quiz Results” = “40” and “Assignment for Lecture 3” = “60”. Let’s say that you have scored a “score” and “Lecture 3 quiz” = “80 points”. At this time, if the weighting is set to 1.0 for all three contents, the result of the quiz will be: lecture 3 Assignment: 10 points (30 points*1/3) + 20 points (60) because the quiz in Lecture 3 = 1:1:1 Points*1/3) + 30 points (90 points*1/3) = 60 points for the entire course.
On the other hand, “Student Taro 4” has a “teaching field quiz result” = “90” and “Lecture 3 assignment” = “-” (not yet Suppose you have a “Lecture 3 quiz” = “60 points” (not to be graded by submission).
At this time, if the weighting is set to 1.0 for all three contents, the result of the quiz will be: “Lecture 3 quiz = 1:1: (Lecture 3 assignments are not graded), so the score is 45 (90 points*1/ 2) + 30 points (60 points*1/2) = 75 points for the entire course. If the student has not submitted the “Lecture 3” assignment and the grade is “0”, then 30 points (90 points*1/3) + 0 Points (0*1/3) + 20 points (60*1/3) = 50 points for the entire course (“The (Student Taro 3 is in this state).

*If you want to include content with a grade of “-” in the calculation, you need to change the settings.
