Setup Weighted Grade

This document provides detailed instructions on setting up the Weighted Grade feature in the Steams Online Course Registration and Management System. This feature allows you to assign different weights to different types of assignments, thereby affecting the overall course grade calculation.


Weighted grades are based on percentages and not points.

For instance, a quiz may be worth 100 points but be 15% of the students grade, while homework may be worth 500 points but only be 10% of the overall grade. The points do not get added together.
