## How are grades calculated with weight?

Weighted grade calculation The weighted grade is equal to the sum of the product of the weights (w) in percent (%) times the grade (g): Weighted grade = w1×g1+ w2×g2+ w3×g3+…

### What is the weight in a grade?

The weighted system calculates grade items as a percentage of a final grade worth 100%. The Max. Points you assign to individual grade items can be any value, but their contribution towards the category they belong to and the final grade is the percentage value (weight) assigned to them.

For example: A Gradebook has four entries with the following values for one Student: 80/100, 70/100, 40/50, 6/10. The Student’s final grade will be calculated by adding points earned (80+70+40+6), then dividing by points available (100+100+50+10). So, in this case, the Student’s grade is 196/260, or 75%.

How do you calculate a person’s average weight?

## What does it mean when grades are not weighted?

Non-weighted grades are calculated in such a way that every point has the same weight, no matter the assignment. For example, one point on a chapter quiz has the same weight toward the final average as one point on an exam.
