EdgeEX course options – Grade weights


This article is for use by EdgeEX Beta users.


Each activity in an EdgeEX course has a grade weight category set in the course options. A student's course grade is a weighted average based on to the values set in the Default grade weights section below. Educators can change the grade weights for activities and assessments from the defaults by updating the Grade Weights course option. The values must total 100.

If a grade weight category exists in the course but there are no scores in that category yet, the grade weight category will be considered not represented in the course when calculating the course grade. Available points are distributed proportionately across the categories that do have scores.

Default grade weights vary by course. The default grade weights for the EdgeEX Algebra I course are as follows:
