I am trying to help a professor right now that wants to do the following:
Drop the lowest 2 quizzes from 12 quizzes (done), BUT if they score higher on the midterm than the "quizzes category total" - the midterm grade will replace the quiz grades.
I tried advanced calculations (but no logical operators, if/then, are supported). Then I tried nesting categories (ie: 1 category called 'combined' with 2 sub-categories (one dropping the lowest 2 with 12 quiz grade items and the other just with 1 midterm grade item). But apparently, you cannot "drop the lowest" when the category contains sub categories?
What's the best way to do this?
