Hi everyone,

I am wondering.. is it possible to have extra credit with simple weighted mean of grades? I am working with an instructor and the calculations do not appear to be correct.

We have four categories.

1. Category set up for a series of 50-point essays. (SWM)

2. Category set up for Assignments each worth 20 points. (SWM)

3. Category set up for Exams each worth 150 points. (SWM)

4. Category set up for Extra Credit from Forums each worth 10 points. (Sum of grades set to extra credit)

The over-all category is set to SWM and all SWM categories are set to aggregate only non-empty grades. All categories with SWM have 100 point totals for the category.

Should this work in Moodle?

The instructor thinks we should be able to add up all the points and devide by the total possible (which don't include the extra credit)...and come up with the same number. But I think the weighting will total different.
