Weighted Grades Issue
I work as both an instructional designer and as a teacher/trainer.
I'd like to add to this one (and hopefully bump it up in the process)!
This is currently a feature AND a bug:
When I use weighted groups in Assignments, I also use points.
I want to see BOTH percentages AND points. Currently, the only way to do this is to turn off weighting and manually enter points, at which point I see percentages AND points in student view. Why can't I see the points average when I've got weighted calculations turned on? This seems weird... BUT... it gets worse. Read on....
Here's the bug part:
The percentage averages are NOT the same between the weighted calculations and points calculations. In fact, they are off by about one percentage point. Something is wonky on the back-end there. The percentage averages should be the same, regardless.
So I see this has been kicked around for a few years over in the forums, but I didn't have time to read through 8 pages of comments.
Can we get average points on the weighted calculations, too, and not have a discrepancy between the average percentages between the two?
To give a visual of what I'm talking about, here is a shot of a points-only student view:
Here's the exact same student, same grades, with weighted calculations turned on:
As you can see, there's something off somewhere.
