Calculating Grades

In the Grade Center, you can calculate grades by combining multiple columns to attain performance results, such as class averages, final grades that are based on a weighted scale, or total points. These are called calculated columns. You can display these columns to students so they can view performance results, or you can display them only in the Grade Center for your use. The available calculated columns include the following:

New courses contain two created columns: a Total column and a Weighted Total column. To learn more, see About Calculated Columns in the Grade Center.
