If you use weighted grades in your course, you may be interested in using a weighted total column to calculate a course grade. To do this, follow these steps:
1) Navigate to the full grade center and click on the edit menu button for the weighted total column. Select "Edit Column Information."
On the next page, you can scroll down about halfway and select either the assignment columns or the assignment categories to use for weighted score calculation. Use the respective arrow buttons to move the columns into the "selected columns" area.
Once selected, you can assign weights to each assignment or category. Weights must total 100%. Notice in the image below, that you can specify how to calculate the score for a category (tests in this example).
Once you are done, (be sure to review the remaining options on the page) you can click submit. You have now created a weighted total column!
