Weighted Grading:

If you choose to use the Weighted Grading option in the Grades Wizard in Brightspace, you can have Brightspace calculate component grades from multiple sub-components. In this example we will demonstrate the use of Weighted Grades for a module with a CA component made up of sub-components.

Note: Where there are no sub-components instructors may benefit from using the Points option in the Grades Wizard as demonstrated in this resource here.

The example comprises the below elements:

  • Continuous Assessment component totalling 40% of final grade - the CA is composed of individual and group assignments both comprising 20% of final grade (40% overall)
  • Final Exam component totalling 60% of final grade
