When does system "drop the lowest category setting that has been set to 2" ? Must all grades be entered for this category before this happens?
In the above course:
Drop the lowest two grades has been added for a single grade book category (Posts), which is set up with aggregation method of "simple weighted mean of grades." The course overall is set up with aggregation method "weighted mean of grades."
Three categories have weights of 56% (560 points), 19% (190 points), and 25% (250 points).
The category with the "drop two lowest values" is the one with the weighting (25%). This category consists of 12 grade items with a point value of 25 points each (Total = 300 points). When the two lowest grades are dropped it will have a Total = 250 points.
Is this set up correctly? Goal: Drop the two lowest grades from the Posts category so that the course points total 1000 points, not 1050.
Should she have simply used the Natural aggregation method?
