Points? Percentages? Categories? Weighting? We'll review how to configure your eCommons Gradebook. We will discuss some of the limitations of this gradebook. You will leave with a clear idea of how to configure your gradebook for eCommons. You may decide to use Microsoft Excel if you have complex calculations that you use in your grading. In that case, we can setup an additional consulting appointment to configure your gradebook in Excel.
