I feel like an idiot. Can anyone clue me into how a point based grading system works. I feel that I need to weigh my tests more than homework or quizzes and I am just not sure how this comes into play with a grade points system Help. I feel like I am the only one that does not understand this at all. We have a program that we follow and for some reason I just really can't make sense of it. For example if a student gets a 25 out of 32 question quiz. Do I Still make the max points 50 if that is what I want will that automatically weigh the grade. Help!!!!!
