Grade Weighting

The Art of Education University implements weighted grading. Course Assignments are generally worth 80% of your overall grade and Discussion Boards are generally worth 20%. Check your course’s syllabus for its specific weighting system.

Your weighted grade for each assignment and discussion board will appear next to the raw score in Brightspace. The weight of each item will automatically adjust as more coursework is assessed.
