How can Grade System Managers set Grade Configurations for Courses?

The Grade System Manager (GSM) is responsible for setting all grade configurations for all courses prior to the first day of school. To do this, we recommend that GSMs first align with their school leaders and key stakeholders to decide what configuration is most appropriate for the subject level and/or courses.

GSMs have the ability to:

  • Edit the weight of projects and/or Math Concept Units
  • Edit the weight of Focus Areas
  • Add or remove weighting of Additional Focus Areas
  • Add or remove weighting of Portfolio Problems

If no changes are made, the default recommendation for courses will be:

Non-Math Courses:

  • 80% Projects
  • 14% Power Focus Areas
  • 6% Additional Focus Areas

Math Courses:

  • 70% Concept Units
  • 10% Portfolio Problems
  • 14% Power Focus Areas
  • 6% Additional Focus Areas

 To edit a course grade configuration:

1. Navigate to Curriculum on the left side tab
2. Click Courses
3. Select the course you want to edit
4. Located in the upper right, the current “Course Weighting” is displayed. Click Edit to manage the course weighting

5.  For standard configurations (non-Math courses), select the suggested course weighting and click Save

6. For custom configurations (non-Math courses), enter the percent weight, making sure the sum of all percents equals 100%. Click Save
7. The new course weight will be reflected on the course page
