Grade Setup: Apply Semester Weights

Semester weights (S) are different from category/term weights (T) because this is what separates the final weight (E) -- typically between 10 to 15% of the overall grade -- from the non-final weight.

Please note: These steps ONLY apply if your setup is not Term=85% and Final=15% (as this is the default for PowerTeacher Pro users).


To apply semester weights:

  1. Navigate to PowerTeacher Pro and click on SettingsScreen_Shot_2017-11-30_at_10.40.52_AM.png

  6. Click Save.
