Reminder: Check Horizontal Averaging Rules Before Calculating Mid-Year, Year to Date, Final Averages
Horizontal Averaging Rules are used to determine the weight of each Grade Heading when you use iPASS to calculate Mid-year, Year to Date, or Final Averages. These rules also come into play when calculating the Honor Roll and GPA.
If you changed the number of terms from 3 to 4 or added a MidTerm or Final Exam to the mix, you will have to adjust the Horizontal Average Rules to include those grade headings and indicate the percentage needed of each grade heading.
You may change the values in this table before processing either a Horizontal Average calculation, Honor Roll, or a GPA calculation if you want different weighting.
Before running GPA, Honor Roll, or Horizontal Averaging the Horizontal Averages Rules need to be assigned to the course sections.
CAUTION: If you have multiple Horizontal Averaging Rules that include the exact same Terms you should not run Assign Average Rules to Sections. You will need to manually assign to the course sections. This can be done using Course Catalog > Course Schedule > Field to Update = Average Rule.
