Component/s: Gradebook Classic
Allow instructors to set up their gradebooks based on percent weighted assigments, rather than (or as an alternative to) the current point-weighted assignments method.
Real life example from management class syllabus:
Students will be graded according the follwing formula:
Organization project report: 35%
Issue project report 35%
Student project presentation: 15%
Student overall Class participation: 15%
(end of example)
In the current GB the instructor would enter the numbers as points rather than percentages, but would then need to grade reports as a number between 0 and 35. In a percentage based system an instructor would grade all of the assignments from 0-100. The gradebook shoud then do the calculations based on the weights given.
This is the grading method that predominates at MIT.
