The Simple weighted mean of grades aggregation method is best for people who u= se a combination of points and percentages. This aggregation type does not = allow you to set a weight for items or the categories; it simply uses the i= nherent weighting you've established by setting different maximum point val= ues. For example, a 75-point item is worth more than a 25-point item. If yo= u want all the student scores added together and divided by the points poss= ible to obtain a percentage, use this aggregation. This aggregation also ea= sily allows teachers to flag items as extra credit, if that option is neede= d.

Info

Simple Weighted Mean sums the scores the student has earned and divides = by points possible to arrive at a percentage.
6/10 + 8/10 + 88/100=3D 10= 2/120 (85%)

## Step-by-s= tep guide

To set course Aggregation type to Simple weight= ed mean of grades:

1. From the main course page, select Gradebook setup from the&= nbsp;gear icon (top right). 2. Within Gradebook set, click the&= nbsp;Edit > S<= /strong>ettings link next to the course category. 3. Toggle or confirm that Aggregation is set to Simple weighted mean of grades. =
4. Click Save changes at the bot= tom of the screen.

Empty Grades simply indicates that a grade has not been entered in the g= radebook. It may be empty because a student has not made a submission or th= at the teacher has not yet graded the item. Empty grades display as dashes = in the Grader Report; they are different than scores of zero. Zeros are cal= culated, but dashes (empty grades) count towards the overall grade dependin= g on what the teacher in the site has selected.

By clicking Exclude Empty Grades, the teacher is displa= ying a total that only reflects the graded items in the course, and the ove= rall grade does not include ungraded items. The video below
