Total Points with Weight: In this calculation method, the students' cumulative grade is based on the total points a student earned, divided by the total points attempted within each assignment type. The assignment type grades are then averaged together based on their weights. Select this option if the cumulative grade is based on something like 30% homework, 40% quizzes, and 30% exams, but each assignment within those categories is worth varying points. 

  • Formula 
    For each assignment type: sum(assignment grade * assignment factor) / sum(maximum points * factor) = Assignment type grade
    Then: sum(assignment type grade * weight) / sum(weight) * 100 = Total cumulative grade
