Bug Description

Arlington School Board Policy requires that the following formula be used to calculate midterm and final grades:

A = 4, B = 3, C = 2, D = 1, E = 0

Then the formula is simple: Add up the points for each quarter (the final exam can count as much as a quarter) and divide by the number of quarters. Then round to the nearest whole number and that is the grade. Teacher's only have discretion on a grade like 2.5, which can be either a C or a B.

It appears the gradebook no longer supports this requirement. It did 2 years back.

Did you go to preferences and make a summary sheet?

Perhaps we need to make that more obvious... or update the documentation.
