How do I use the Adjusted Grade feature?

Filed under: , ,
Adjusted grades are used for rounding a student's calculated final grade up or down.

The Adjusted Grade feature allows you to slightly modify the calculated final grade. For example your cut off for an A is 92%, a student in your class receives a final calculated grade of 91.7%. It is your policy to round grades to the nearest whole number, so the student should receive an A. You will need to use the Adjusted Grade Feature.
