Within the settings, there are three tabs:  assessment scale, categories, and grade book settings.

The first tab that opens up is grade book settings, in which you may alter the following options:

  • Weighting: When enabled, weighting allows you to enter a numerical weight to assignments, tests, or tasks. Unless weighting is utilized, all are calculated as a percentage (100%). The option for weighting assessments allows you to increase the value for individual assignments. For example, one assignment might be multiplied twice while another one counts three times toward an average.
  • Average: This option includes calculation and visibility settings.
  • Export to CSV: If manually linking the grade book to another program or Excel spreadsheet, you may choose to export the grade book to a CSV file.
