Weighting the Semester & Final Exam
This needs to be done each semester
Weighting Your Semester and Semester Exam in Synergy
How it Works:
1st SEMESTER (90%) + EXAM (10%) = a calculated 1st SEMESTER grade
If you are in the Social Studies and Science department, see your IL. Your set up is different as you weight your final exam as a separate grade book category.
To begin, go to the “Report Card” tab and select “Term Weighting.”
Once in “Term Weighting,” check the box labeled “1st Semester Grades.”
This is an example of what your screen should look like and what boxes you should check.
Then, scroll down to the bottom of the page. Here, you can apply these weights to your other classes by checking the appropriate boxes.
After you have weighted your semester grades, you can view them by returning to “Grade Book Main” and changing the grading “Period” to show “1st Semester Grades.”
