Assigning Grading Periods to a Class Section

Table of contents


Once you have created your grading periods, you can choose which ones to use for a class section. Depending on whether you have the same group of students across multiple grading periods or whether you only have a different group of students each marking period, you can assign two or more grading periods, or just one grading period per section. If you keep the same group of students across more than one grading period, you have the ability to assign a different weight to each grading period. i.e. the first grading period may be worth only 40% of the student's overall grade, but the second grading period is worth 60% of the student's overall grade.

Where To Go

To assign grading periods such as Fall 2016, Spring 2017, etc. for use in a class section, you will log into your site and click on the class tile. Click Gradebook.

  1. Click on the title of the class.
  2. Select a class section.
