Grading categories for Career and Technical Education (CTE) courses

When new Career and Technical Education (CTE) courses are imported into the LMS, default grade weight categories apply. This page outlines the activities found throughout the courses and the corresponding grade weight category for each.


Educators can manually assign a grade to any activity using the Change Score option, and that score will be calculated into the grade weight category based on this chart.

The chart below outlines the type of activity in a CTE course and where the score, if graded, would fall.
