Customize Semester and Final Average Weighting

You can customize semester and final average weighting by assigning weight to individual marking periods, or by combining marking periods. By assigning weight to individual marking periods, you can allow different marking periods to affect averages differently. By combining marking periods, you can allow category weights and column weights to affect averages without any regard for individual marking periods.

Weight Marking Periods Individually

When you weight marking periods individually, you can determine how much each one counts towards averages.

To weight marking periods individually, do the following:

  1. On the side-navigation menu, click Grading, and then click the Averages tab.
  2. In the Weights column, double-click the cell next to the marking period you want to weight, enter the value, and then press Enter.

    Repeat this step for each marking period you want to weight, and then click Save.

    The report card columns in your gradebook may be different than the columns in this example. The default report card columns in this menu are Midyear Grade and Final Grade; however, many schools choose to customize their configuration. Report card columns are customized in AdminPlus.

    Enter Semester and Final Average Weights

    To make the grading process more efficient, ensure your values add up to 100. However, it's not necessary for your values to add up to 100.

Use Combined Marking Periods

When you combine marking periods, you can set category weights and column weights that affect averages without regard for individual marking periods.

To use combined marking periods, do the following:

  1. On the side-navigation menu, click Grading, and then click the Averages tab.
  2. Click Use Combined MP's, and then select the marking periods you want to include in the grade.

    Repeat this step if you'd like to use combined marking periods for every grade calculation, and then click Save.

    If your school uses semester exam columns (exam columns that are pulled into Admin Plus and included on report cards) these columns will not be counted in averages when using combined marking periods.

    Use Combined Marking Periods

    The report card columns in your gradebook may be different than the columns in this example. The default report card columns in this menu are Midyear Grade and Final Grade; however, many schools choose to customize their configuration. Report card columns are customized in AdminPlus.
