    I am using powerteacher for the 1st time next semester. I would like to make the semester final worth 10%. Obviously, there is no final exam for the first quarter. So, if I make the final exam one of my categories and I don't fill it the first quarter, will powerschool just average the other categories for the first quarter? I am unsure how to set this to include a semester final.

    Thanks.

    I've done it two ways.

    My first year, I made my exam one of my categories and left it blank until I had an exam mark. For the other marking periods, Powerteacher calculated their grades based on the categories that had marks attached to them.

    Otherwise, you can go under Grade Setup and under term weights add in an exam (the notation will be E1). So, it will be like a completely different reporting term.

    I'm not great with Powerteacher, so I hope that made sense!
