I have weighted grading set up for my courses, and it seems to be working fine-- so far the overall grade generated for each student for the 1 paper (10% of the final grade) and 1 exam (20% of the final grade) is accurate. BUT this is not the case when a student has a 0 on a paper. For some reason, if the student has a 0 on a paper that is worth 10% of their grade, and got an 86% on their exam, it averages their grade to be a 56%. Since their other grades aren't in yet, then even missing the 10% of the paper grade, they should still have more than a 56% in the course. What's going on?
Weighted grading isn't correct when student has a 0 on an assignment
