Classe365's Assessment & Grading Module offers the orgaization to have the flexibility to support various grading scales like **Percentage, Grades, Rubrics, Manual Entry **with Assessments.

If you want to know how to add assessment, how to setup weights please refer this documentation.

Now, lets begin calculating the overall of any suject.

## Step-1: Setup Assessment Categories

Go to **Grade Setup > Add Assessment Categories **

Let's create 5 different assessment categories as shown in the snapshot.

*The categories are:*

*Extra Credits**Class Test**Final Exam**Internals**Practicals*

## Step-2: Setup Weights to Categories

If you want to know how to manage *weights please refer this documentation**.*

I've created a class called **A-1**, Section- **Semester-2, and** it has **English **subject with 2 students.

Now, for subject English, we have 5 categories. Out of 5 we shall consider 2 categories (i.e, **Class Test** & **Final Exam).** Adding assessments to these categories and each category carries 50 points, hence the weight setup to this subject is as below:

Weight is set up to English subject now, let's add assessments to these 2 categories

## Step-3: Add Assessments

We can add assessments to these categories(i.e, **Class Test Final Exam**), which specify the grading scale, applied to subjects, enabling **count towards overall.**

Now that we've added 4 assessments, to two assessment categories.

**Category-1: Class Test** has 3 assessments called:

Test-1

Test-2

Test-3

**Category-2: Final Exam **has 1 assessment called:

A-1 Exam

Each assessment having 50 points max, with ** Actual Points** as grading scale.

Let's move to gradebook to see how the overall calculation works

## Step-4: Calculating Overall Score

Now, let's capture scores to the assessments students has completed.

*Note**: There are 2 categories( i.e, **Class Test and Final Exam**) the first category(**Class Test**) is having 3 assessment(i.e, **Test 1, Test 2,Test 3**) and the second category(i.e**, Final Exam**) is having one assessment(i.e, **A-1 Exam**).*

*Note**: There are 2 categories( i.e, Class Test and Final Exam) the first category(Class Test) is having 3 assessment(i.e, Test 1, Test 2,Test 3) and the second category(i.e, Final Exam) is having one assessment(i.e, A-1 Exam).*

Formulas:

Assessment =

**(Obtained-points / Total-points) * Category-weight**Assessment Category =

**(Assessment-1 + Assessment-2 +...+Assessment N) / N**Overall of Subject =

**Asmt Category 1 + Asmt Category 2 +...+ Asmt Category N**

As per the attached snapshot,

**Category-1: Class Test - **has below assessments

Test-1 = *(Obtained/Total)*Weight = (30/50)*50 = 30*

Test-2 =

*(35/50)*50 = 35*

Test-3 =

*(45/50)*50 = 45*

Category-1 score = *(30+35+45) / 3 = 36.66*

Class Test = (Test 1+Test 2+Test 3)/ total number of assessments

The **Class Test **has the score 36.66.

**Category-2: Final Exam** - has below assessment

**A-1 Exam** *= (Obtained/Total) * Weight = (40/50) * 50 = 40*

The **Final Exam **has the score 40.

Therefore the **overall Score**= Category 1 + Category 2

= 36.66 + 40

= **76.66**

There are another criteria to be considered here, which is **Weight Percentage**.

Weight Percentage is considered when you enable the option **to consider overall score calculation for categories without grade entry?**

Now the system considers the overall if there are no grades to other assessment categories, that are **Extra Credits, Internals, Laboratory.**

Our system considers the overall score of any given subject is 100 percent, if the weight total is not 100 then the system considers the Weight-Percent the column in while setting up weight (%)

In the above screenshot the total is 80, but system needs to make sure it wants to setup the overall to 100, hence system considers the weight-percentage to calculate the overall.

**Weight Percentage = (Weight/ Total Point) *100**

Extra Credits - 0

Class Test - 32

Final Exam - 48

Internal - 0

Laboratory - 0

Weight Total Point = (0+32+48+0+0) = 80

**Class Test**Weight Percent ⇾ (32/80) * 100 =**40**

**Final Exam**Weight Percent ⇾ (48/80) * 100 =**60**

Now, let's take an example of the Spanish Subject:

*Consider this **subject **has assessments** **with total points** 100, **grading scale ***Actual Points.**

**Category-1: Class Test - **has below sub assessments

Test-1 = *(Obtained/Total)*Weight = (65/100)*32 = 20.8*

Test-2 = *(78/100)*32 = 24.96*

Test-3 =* (49/100)*32 = 15.68Class Test = (20.8 + 29.46 + 15.68) / 3 = 20.48*

Category Score = (avg-score/weight)*weight percent = (20.48/32)*40 = 25.6

*The Class Test has the score 25.6*

****

**Category-2: Final Exam** - has below sub assessment

**A-1 Exam** *= (Obtained/Total) * Weight = (82/100) * 48 = 39.36* Considering Weight Percent = (39.36/48) * weight percent = 0.82*60 = 49.2

*The Final Exam has the score 49.2*

Therefore, the overall = Category 1 + Category 2

= 25.6+49.2

= **74.8 out of 100**

This is how the overall is calculated.
