Does Schoology have the ability to curve?

Follow

I am trying to figure out whether I have the ability to have my test automatically grade on a curve? I only see where I can override the grade but I do not want to have to go in each student and do this. I do not see where I can use the scales provided to do this.

    Hi Selene,

    Unfortunately, we do not currently support the ability to curve grades within Schoology. Manually overriding grades, as you mentioned, would be the best alternative.

    I've moved your request to our Community Feature Requests Forum so that other users can vote for your idea and share their feedback. Our development team takes these suggestions into consideration when planning new changes in Schoology.

    If you have any other questions about this, please let us know.

    Best,
    Robert

    It would be an easy fix if you just let us change the point value without changing the already inputed scores.  That is the most basic of curves and it is a MUST have in any grade calculating program.

    WOW! I just started using this platform.  I was actually quite impressed.  I am on board, BUT I just gave my first math test and have now discovered this SERIOUS issue.  As an Accelerated Math teacher, this is a MAJOR problem.  The tests are designed to be quite challenging.  My highest score was a 54% and I CANNOT CURVE THE TEST.  If LAUSD expects us to use this, then there need to be a  fix ASAP. I assign a redo that is a guaranteed 20 points in the test category and I need each test to be weighted at a 100 points and the redos at 20 points all in the test category that is weighted as 40% of their grade.  HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I see this being requested since 2014. I really do like using Schoology, but this would be a great change.
