      Description

      Include a formula column that can calculate a grade based on scores in other columns.

      The formula GUI should allow an instructor to type standard operators (+-*/) into the formula, use parenthesis ( ) to control what gets calculated first, and allow the instructor to type in other columns as variables into the formula.

      An advanced formula column should also allow an instructor to group other columns together and specify that the lowest score from that group be dropped.

      A really advanced formula column should be able to extrapolate a final grade based on the work that a student has done up until a particular point in the semester. These formula columns are sometimes called "running grade columns." A good running grade column won't include columns in a calculation if the column in question is associated with an assignment that isn't due yet.
