Why aren't my grades calculating correctly?

Often times, grades will not appear to calculate correctly in the gradebook. This is due to the instructor doing a manual override on the grades and entering a grade into a calculated category. 

When manually entering grades in the Grader Report area, it is important to note just exactly where you are entering grade values. Calculation errors often occur when entering grades into the wrong column.

 For example, a common error is when grades are entered into a Course Total or Course Category column. This will void the gradebook from calculating grades properly. Follow the steps below to correct the problem.

Override

Notice the Course total score is currently highlighted in yellow. This means a manual entry has been made in this calculated column and it will disrupt the gradebook from making the correct calculations. To correct the problem, follow these steps:

To correct this, please scroll to each assignment and click on the pencil image next to the assignment name:

Then, you will see the “Override” box is checked for each student, please uncheck this box and click “Save”: 

Uncheck

Note: This will need to be completed for every student for the column to calculate correctly.  If you have multiple columns shaded in yellow, as in the example above, you will also need to repeat this step for each column.

When you are finished, your Course total column should no longer be highlighted in yellow; rather it should look similar to this:

Now the grades will be calculated correctly.
