[New Feature] Individual Marking Period Weighting

There is a new feature in Finalsite Learn where teachers can set their own weighting across marking periods and exams.

Previously the grade weighting could only be set per school in the LMS Manager. To set these weightings for the school you can navigate to Modules and Settings (or Site Manager) --> Modules --> LMS Manager --> Terms --> "Weight Term/Exam Grades"

From here you can set a customized weighting of grades overall for all classes in the school, however, you can now check off "Allow teachers to customize weighting per gradebook." This way, teachers will be able to customize their weighting.

Once this is enabled, teachers can navigate to their group space, click on "gradebook" then "settings." At the bottom they will now see a radio button where they can select "Define Custom Weighting"

This will then be used when calculating terms (i.e. Semester 1 and Semester 2 in this example) and the year to date grade as well.

We hope you enjoy this new feature! Happy Friday!
