Personalize your grading process by adding grade symbols in AdminPlus. You can assign quality points to a symbol and determine if a student will receive credit when they're assigned the symbol. You can also choose to count the symbol toward the student's GPA and honor roll calculations.
Quality PointsQuality points are a numerical representation of a grade symbol, and they vary from school to school. Whether or not you choose to give credit or not for the grade symbol, the quality points are added to the student's grade total.
