If you weight various items or categories by particular percentages of the overall course grade, use the Weighted mean of grades aggregation type. After selecting this type, a weight column will appear where users may assign percentages to items or categories, such as making Exam 1 worth 15% of students' overall grade.

Entering weights will be easier after all grade items have been set up for the course.

Step-by-step guide

  1. From the main course page, select Gradebook setup from the gear icon.

  2. In the Actions column for the Course, click the Edit menu > Settings link.

    Edit - Settings


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

  4. Click Save changes at the bottom of the screen and the fields for entering percentages will display in the Weight column for any grade items.

  5. Enter the weights for the categories or grade items as a percentage (e.g., 15 for 15%) , and click Save changes at the bottom of the screen.
