# FAQ – How are unit grades (scores) calculated?

To calculate the weighted grade for each assignment type, lets look at this example:

The default weight values are:

• Lesson Weight – 25%
• Quiz Weight – 25%
• Project Weight – 25%
• Test Weight – 25%

#### Step 1: Look at the number of assignments and grades for each type for the unit

• 10 Lessons with grades of: 96, 87, 32, 83, 94, 77, 96, 88, 79, 63
• 3 Quizzes with grades of: 99, 100, 62
• 4 Projects with grades of: 72, 85, 97, 98
• 1 Test with a grade of: 93

#### Step 2: Calculate an average for each assignment type and multiply that average by the assignment type weight to get a Unit Grade by Type

To calculate an average, add all grades for each type and then divide by the number of assignments.

Assignment Type Grades Total # of Assignments Average Weight Unit Grade by Type

Project 75 + 85 + 97 + 98 355 4 88.75 25% 22.1875
Quiz 99 + 100 + 62 261 3 87 25% 21.75
