Grade Categories

Managing Categories of Grades in SchoolFront

After and administrator user or teacher  has added classes to the system, grade categories must be defined for each class before teachers can add assignments to the system for tracking and grading purposes.

Grade Categories represent groups of Graded Items and can be weighted differently to affect the grade calculation. An example would be that you want to weight tests more heavily than homework.

See the example in the table below.


Grade Category % of Total Grade Drop Lowest Grade
Tests 50% No
Homework 15% Yes
Quizzes 25% Yes
Participation 10% No


If you are a teacher, select the action that you would like to take:
