Set all marking periods to Total Points. They should be total points by default but double check to make sure.

This whole process must be done for each and every class.

The end result is you give grades, anything between 0 and 100 for every assignment. The computer takes the total points accumulated and divides by the total possible point for a final percentage.

If quizzes have less points than tests (say 10pts vs 100pts) then they weight different in the marking period. if the points are all the same out of 100 say, then quizzes weigh the same as tests.

In the end this process will provide accurate and defendable grades in all situations Bullet Proof
