The Simple weighted mean of grades aggregation method is best for people who use 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 inherent weighting you've established by setting different maximum point values. For example, a 75-point item is worth more than a 25-point item. If you want all the student scores added together and divided by the points possible to obtain a percentage, use this aggregation. This aggregation also easily allows teachers to flag items as extra credit, if that option is needed.

Step-by-step guide

To set course Aggregation type to Simple weighted mean of grades:

  1. From the main course page, select Gradebook setup from the gear icon (top right).

  3. Toggle or confirm that Aggregation is set to Simple weighted mean of grades.

  4. Click Save changes at the bottom of the screen.
