Step 1Go to the "Settings" tab on the left then "Course Categories"
Step 2Select the Course you wish to edit under the "Select a Course" drop-down menu. As an administrator you will see a list of all the Courses in the school
Choose your Average Calculation Routine from the drop down menu. Skedula can create your gradebook averages with two methods, "Points" or "Averages"
See below for a detailed explanation of the differences between both routines
The notable difference between both methods is the weighting of point values.
The Points Method has Test 1 (50pts) weighted half as much of Test 2 (100pts).
The Average Method calculates both Test 1 (50pts) and Test 2 (100pts) equivalent in weight
Step 4Set your Grading Policy. When deciding your Categories, your Categories can be weighted or unweighted by checking the "Use Weighted Categories" selection
When using Weighted Categories, the totality of the categories must add to 100%
By checking the "Drop Lowest Grade" box next to a category, Skedula will automatically drop the lowest grade in that category for the given Marking Period
