Q. How are the MidTerm and Final Exam Assignment Grades defined in Rankbook so they will average into the Final Grade?
A. Teachers use the Assignment Weights screen (iTeacher/Rankbook) or Course Weights screen (My Courses/Gradebook) to select the assignment type that will represent their Midterm or Final Exam and assign a weight % of the Final Grade.
Step 1: Create a MidTerm and Final Assignment Type.
Step 2: Set up the Averaging for the MidTerm and/or Final assignment type
Note: If changes are made to the Weights screen after the assignment and assignment grade has been entered into Rankbook/Gradebook, be sure to check off the Recompute Averages box at the bottom of the Weights screen AND recalculate the averages in your Rankbook/Gradebook. To do this in Add/Modify Rankbook, open the Grade Assignment screen for ONE assignment and Submit the screen again. To do this in My Courses/Gradebook, select Recompute Averages from the Actions menu. This step is needed to apply the changes made on the Weights screen to the assignments already entered.
