This form is used to edit the properties of an Assignment Type within a class. The properties of the Class Assignment Type are inherited by default from the Assignment Type but can be overridden via this form.
- Assignment Type: select an Assignment Type from the list of currently active assignment types (Assignment Types are defined via the Assignment Types form.)
- Weight: weight of this assignment type when computing the final average of a student in a class. When College Office computes the average of a student in a class, it first computes the average of the student assignments for each assignment type and then computes the final grade by averaging each assignment type average according to the weight of the assignment type. Note that each assignment can also have its own weight within the type to which it belongs.
- Min Grade: minimum average the student must have within this type to pass the class. Though a student may have a passing final average, he/she may still fail the class if he/she has an average below this minimum within this type. Example: though a 60% average would normally give the student a passing grade, you may require an average above 70% in the "Test" assignment type.)
- Low Grades Ignored: enter 1 if you want to ignore the lowest grade within the assignment type when computing the student average within the type. Enter 0 if you do not want to ignore any grade, enter 2 if you want to ignore the 2 lowest grades, etc.
Check Gradebook and Assignment Types for more details on assignment types.
