I'm wondering if once you use categories with the simple weighted mean of grades, do you have to then ensure that all items in the gradebook are in a category? If not, how are the items outside of a category treated?
I have attached an example. I cannot determine how the 77.40% is being arrived at. There are four items that are not in categories. How are they be treated in the calculation of the grade?
We are using SWMG, no extra credit. Category total for every category is 100.
