Understanding the Final Grades calculation with the Final Grading Percentages

A Report Card displays the final grades that are fetched for every marking period based on the gradebook grades. The report may vary depending on the final grading percentages that are set in the configuration setup.

Let's say we set the final grading percentages in the following ratio.

Semester 1 = Quarter 1 (45%) + Quarter 2 (55%) = 100%

Semester 2 = Quarter 3 (65%) + Quarter 4 (35%) = 100%

Full Year = Quarter 1 (10%) + Quarter 2 (10%) + Semester 1 (30%) + Quarter 3 (10%) + Quarter 4 (10%) + Semester 2 (30%) = 100%

Now, after the grades are entered in respect with all assignments in a quarter, the final grades are fetched based on the assignment's total weighted or non-weighted grades.

Hence, Quarter 1 & 2 final grades fetched are 88.8% & 91.2% respectively. To generate semester 1 final grades, change the marking period selection from the Input Final Grades page to Semester 1 and then click on Get Gradebook Grades.

The grades fetched for the student in semester 1 is 90.12%, i.e.

Semester 1 = 45% of Quarter 1 final grades (88.8%) + 55% of Quarter 2 final grades (91.2%)

or, Semester 1 = 39.96% + 50.16%

or, Semester 1 = 90.12%

 

Similarly, then Quarter 3 & 4 final grades are fetched - 80.4% & 90.8% respectively.

The grades fetched for the student in semester 2 is 84.04%, i.e.

Semester 2 = 65% of Quarter 3 final grades (80.4%) + 35% of Quarter 4 final grades (90.8%)

or, Semester 2 = 52.26% + 31.78%

or, Semester 2 = 84.04%

 

Now, Full Year final grades fetched is 87.37%, i.e.

Full Year = 10% of Q1 (88.8%) + 10% of Q2 (91.2%) + 30% of S1 (90.12%) + 10% of Q3 (80.4%) + 10% of Q4 (90.8%) + 30% of S2 (84.04%)

or, Full Year = 8.88 + 9.12 + 27.036 + 8.04 + 9.08 + 25.212

or, Full Year = 87.368 or 87.37

Once all the marking period's final grades are fetched, the report card can be generated all the final grades appear in one place.
