How the Final Grade is Calculated

Final Grade Calculation

The final grade may be manually entered or, when using Update Post Columns from the Teacher Gradebook, the final grade can be updated with the District's Final Grade Calculation.

After the Final Grade is populated with the District calculation, the final grade may be manually adjusted.

The Final Grade calculation looks at

  1. The Transcript Definition on the school course to determine how the course is graded
  2. The Schedule term on the section. Each term grade is given a weight.
  3. The Final Exam column. If there is a final exam score, the score will be included in the calculation. If no final exam score, the column is ignored.
