As you can see, the way that grades are documented is a little different than originally thought. I didn't find out until later in the process of getting the grades in, that each grade has to be hand weighed upon putting it into the system. I'm sure you are wondering as I did why they didn't include the option to adjust grade scales in the initial setup... I'm thinking because they knew that that would be the easier option.
So please be sure to reference the number of points that the assignment was worth and then consider the grade that is displayed in the box. If you are looking for a specific percentage, you want to take the number of points received and divide it by the number of points possible. Then move the decimal 2 places to the right. That is the approximate percent grade (depending on if it needed to be rounded or not).
Sorry for the inconvenience. I hope to have all the grades adjusted as soon as possible so that I can get the new grades in.
