There are two ways to have grades calculated in the gradebook:

  • Earned points out of total graded points will calculate each student's grade as the total earned points out of the total points that have been graded. This is the default setting for the gradebook.
  • Earned points out of total possible points will calculate each student's grade as the total earned points out of the total points that have been assigned to the section, even if they haven’t been graded or worked on yet. 

Configuring the Gradebook

To configure how grades are calculated in a section, go to Gradebook and click Configure, then scroll down to the bottom of the pop-up box to update the setting and click Save:

How will updating this setting affect my students' grades?
