    You must do this for each section you teach.

  2. Select Index > Assignments > Edit Grade Calc Options. Check the box for Weight Categories. You must do this for each section you teach.
  3. If category is empty, each other category ends up being worth more. For instance, if tests are 60%, quizzes 20% and homework 20% and you gave three tests and one quiz, that quiz is worth as much as a test. If you aren’t sure about this, find a buddy and talk it over.
  4. You’ll always have a quarter grade to post. At the mid year mark, you’ll need to post a quarter then a semester grade. At the end of the year, you’ll need to post a quarter, semester and final grade.
