  • 08/01/2011Gradebook ASSESSMENTS EntryEXTRA CREDIT: Indicates if the assessment is only used to allow students to earn extra credit. Three options are available:

    Add to Total Points. The extra points will be added to the numerator before averaging. Thus if a student had 180 points out of 200 possible points, plus 5 extra credit points, the average would be 185/200 or a 92.5 percent.Add to Average. The extra points will be added after the average is calculated. Thus if a student had 180 points out of 200 possible points, plus 5 extra credit points, the average without the extra credit would be 180/200 or 90 percent. With the 5 extra credit points, the average would be 95 percent.Not Extra Credit. The regular calculations apply.
