I'm reaching out today with support for best practices for setting up a gradebook. For the course, the grading criteria is broken down into:
Tests - 65%
Formatives - 15%
Practice - 15%
Preview Assignments - 5%

Currently, the gradebook is set up with categories. We have also tried "points" and calculating the "weight" ourselves and are having difficulty getting it to work correctly.

I've attached an image that shows how the current grades should be accurately computed, as well as the current D2L final grade that is showing (that is inaccurate). Any support for how to do this correctly is appreciated!

    Hi, I don't see your image, but from the text, I think you would do best with weighted. Can you try again with the screenshot, so we can see what the problem is?
