My teachers would love it if the gradebook had an "out of option". This feature would be beneficial to all areas of the gradebook (assignments, rubrics, and assessments).
Basic Idea: Raw scores can be entered into the gradebook and converted into the "out of" scores. This feature would allow a teacher to create an assignment that is worth 13 points - using the "out of" feature, the teacher might want this assignment to be worth 20 points. The computer would calculate these scores to appear out of 20 instead of the 13 raw score points.
Here are a few examples from my teachers:
- When entering grading columns or assignments, the teacher has the option to enter the total number of points. There is an additional grading option called “factor”, but if I enter anything besides 1, there is no change. I REALLY want to be able to give an assignment for how many questions I need to, then be able to convert the score directly in Schoology. Example: 13 questions on an assignment, but have the assignment only worth 10 points in the gradebook.
2. I would like to be able to set the total points of an assignment just like I can with an assessment. When creating an assessment that may be worth 8 points, I can use the "gear" to edit the total points for this assignment. In the Gradebook score notation, I can see both the raw score and the gradebook score. For example, the 8 point assessment will be entered into the gradebook as a 10 point assignment. I would like this same feature for an assignment or even for a Rubric that I may be using in Schoology.
