You can assign weights to categories to make certain types of assignments worth more than others. By default, all categories are weighted the same.
Check the Weight Categories box to turn on weighted grading.
Click on the number in the Weight column to change it.
If you recategorize activities when assigning them, you may wish to assign a value of 0 to all categories other than Classwork, Homework, Quizzes, and Tests. That way, activities completed that were not assigned will not count toward the student’s overall grade.
IMPORTANT: To add or adjust grading periods, please contact Santillana USA Technical Support at firstname.lastname@example.org.
