Midterms and Finals

Follow

This article contains the following information: 

Creating a Midterm/Final

You can set any Test/Quiz, Assignment, Assessment, or graded Discussion as a midterm or final in Schoology. Setting an item as a midterm or final affects how the item appears in the gradebook and how its grade calculates in the course.

To set an item as a midterm or final, check Set as midterm/final when creating the material.

Setting the Grading Period of a Midterm/Final

Setting an item as a midterm or final enables you to weigh its grade against sub-periods in a grading period or against all grading periods in the course.

Note: You cannot assign a midterm or final item to a grading period that has no sub-periods, or to a sub-period.

  • Weigh against sub-periods: Select the parent grading period next to Period when creating or editing the item to factor the grade into the grading period grade.
  • Weigh against all grading periods: Select No Grading Period next to Period when creating or editing the item to factor the grade into the Overall Course Grade.

Grade Setup View

You can view how a midterm or final calculates in the course’s Grade Setup under Grading Periods & Final Weights. From Grade Setup, you can adjust the weight of the midterm or final just as you would a grading period or sub-period. You can also use the double arrow icon Screen_Shot_2017-07-25_at_1.57.20_PM.png to drag and move the item. Moving the item can change the grading periods against which you’re weighing the midterm or final.

  • If a midterm or final aligns with sub-periods within a grading period, it is weighted against those sub-periods and calculated into that Grading Period’s grade. Grading_periods_and_final_weights.png
  • If a midterm or final aligns with overall grading periods, it is weighted against those grading periods and calculated into the overall course grade. no_grading_period_final_.png

Student Report View

Midterm and Final grades display in a Student Report exactly as you arrange them in Grade Setup. If you’ve weighted them against sub-periods within a grading period, they appear as a sub-period within a grading period. If you’ve weighted them against other grading periods within the course, they appear as a grading period.

Midterm/Final in a Gradebook Export

When exporting the gradebook, there are two choices:

  • Gradebook as CSV
  • CSV for import into other system

When Gradebook as CSV is chosen, items marked as Midterm/Final will be given their own column within the CSV file. These columns will reflect the titles of the Midterm/Final materials.

When CSV for import into other system is selected, each student will have each item in the course listed in rows and the Midterm/Final item(s) will appear as individual rows in the CSV file.
