Understand How Points, Scores, and Percentages Work

Points

Points represent how much an assignment is worth in your GradeBook.

Raw Score

Use this when weighting assignments. For example: My Quiz Raw Score is 20 and  Points is 10, making every question worth half a point. 

Percentage

A percentage may also be used (e.g., entered in the gradebook) to communicate a student's points and score. Examples are provided below.

Example 1:

For a 50-question test that should count as 100 points in the gradebook:

Points = 100

Raw Score = 50

Clyde receives a RAW SCORE of 47 out of 50 which is the same as receiving 94 out of 100 POINTS or a 94 PERCENT.

Example 2:

For a 100-question quiz that should count as 20 points in the gradebook:

Points = 20

Raw Score = 100

Clyde receives a RAW SCORE of 80 out of 100 which is the same as receiving 16 out of 20 POINTS or a 80 PERCENT.
