Three weighting values are provided in Grade Book Reports:
The method by which each value is calculated is described below.
The Weighted total score is calculated according to the following formula:
si * wi / 100
The Weighted total score is the sum of this formula for all assessments. This is explained in the table below.
Element | Description |
---|---|
si | The participant score in points for the assessment (0 if the assessment is unanswered) |
wi | The weighting for the assessment. This is a number from 0 to 100, with 10 as the default |
The Weighted maximum score for an assessment is calculated according to the following formula:
mi * wi / 100
The Weighted maximum score is the sum of this formula for all assessments. This is explained in the table below.
Element | Description |
---|---|
mi | The maximum score in points for the assessment (0 if the assessment is unanswered) |
wi | The weighting for the assessment. This is a number from 0 to 100, with 10 as the default |
The Weighted percentage score is calculated as the Weighted total score divided by the Weighted maximum score, shown as a percentage value.
For an example about how weighting can be used:
Suppose you have two assessments with the following weighting:
If a participant scores:
Then the weighting is as follows:
The Weighted total score for the example given above is calculated as follows:
Score in points for assessment | Weighting for assessment | ||||
Assessment A | 14 | * | 10 | / 100 | = 1.4 |
Assessment B | 5 | * | 20 | / 100 | = 1 |
Weighted total score | = 2.4 |
The Weighted maximum score for the example given above is calculated as follows:
Maximum score in points for assessment | Weighting for assessment | ||||
Assessment A | 20 | * | 10 | / 100 | = 2 |
Assessment B | 10 | * | 20 | / 100 | = 2 |
Weighted maximum score | = 4 |
The Weighted percentage score for the example given above is calculated as follows:
Weighted total score | Weighted maximum score | ||
2.4 | / | 4.0 | =0.6 (60%) |
