    Question Calculating Grades....Weighting Grades

    Hi. This is our first year homeschooling. I was wondering how most of you calculate your students grades. Do you weight the grades? If so, how? I'm not sure if I should just average the lesson quizzes, chapter tests, activity quizzes, and writing assignments or if the chapter tests or lesson quizzes should count for a bigger percentage of the final grade.

    Thanks if you can help!

    I think you have to decide what works best for your particular child. If the subject is history, but has lots of writing and your child doesn't excel in writing, but totally understands the subject, I probably wouldn't count those type of assignments the same. Maybe you consider the activity and quizzes as a learning tool only and might not count those, just the chapter tests.

    Just some thoughts.
    Joyfully,
