Traditional Progress Report

Traditionally, the grades are A, B, C, D and F. Numeric to letter grade conversions can be customized using the grade scale per course and even per student.

 

Points-Based versus Percentage-Based Grading Systems

 

  • Points-Based

In a points-based system, each assignment, quiz, etc., is given a point value. The final grade is determined by adding up all the points earned and comparing it to a grading standard.

 

  • Percentage-Based

A percentage-based system groups all assignments, quizzes, etc., into "categories" and assigns a percentage or weight to each category. The sum of all the categories will be 100%.

 

While each assignment may be assigned a point value, the final grade is based on the percentage or weight or the categories. For instance, even if the total number of points possible for quizzes equals 300 and the total number of points possible for homework is 100, the homework may still count more towards the final grade, if it counts for a greater percentage of the final grade.
