Gradebook Errors


My grades in the grade book are not being calculated correctly. I use 2 different grade books and the grades weren't matching up so after doing the math it is the Schoology grade book that is miscalculating. I've gone through the setup and weighting and cannot find anything wrong. Some of the grades are off by 10%! Has anyone dealt with this before?

    Hi Karly, 

    Thank you for reaching out in the Schoology Community! 

    Is it possible that your grading categories are set up to calculate by percent, as opposed to total points? If your grading categories are calculating by percent and your other gradebook is calculating by total points (or vice versa), it would cause a discrepancy. 

    You can check your grading category settings by clicking Grade Setup in the left menu of your course. Then, click the title of each grading category. An edit window will appear. For example: 

    Please check this setting for each of your grading categories to make sure that it matches with that of your other gradebook. You can also review this article for more information about the difference between the two calculations. 

    If this does not resolve your issue, please let us know!
