Overall Grade (Definition)

This is the weighted average grade for completed activities based on the grade weights for each type of activity. 

If the student’s course grade has a weight for an activity category the student has not yet completed, that weight will be spread among the other categories proportionally. For example, one quiz will not have a greater impact than another. This grade does not incorporate any penalties for late or missing work. Teachers should reference this grade daily to determine whether a student is beginning to struggle with mastering the content. If this metric begins to decrease, the student is not mastering content.
