Weighted Grades

What are weighted grades?

Weighted grades are used by teachers to help determine how tests, assignments, projects and other class factors will be used with different weights to help calculate a student’s final grade.

For example, a teacher may choose to have the following key class activities impacting a students final grade:
10% First Assignment
25% First Mid-Term Exam
25% In-Class Lab Work
40% Final Exam
Total 100%

Therefore, weighted grades refer to the different levels of importance a teacher assigns to different units of items students need to deliver within their class.

Weighted grades are usually seen to be a fair and transparent way for students to understand how their final mark will be calculated and it may help the student determine how much effort to put into certain class activities.
