You can now configure weighted Grade Point Averages (GPA) in select QuickSchools report card templates. If you go to the “Report Cards” > “Setup Report Cards” menu, and select the appropriate report card template, the following configuration options will be available to you:
Simply select how you want to weigh Honors and Advanced Placement subjects, and the corresponding section will appear in your report card. Here’s an example of what the report card will looking using our “Contemporary Quarters” template:
Notice that the Weighted GPA calculation is different from the typical GPA. You can also re-label the text that appears here to suit your needs, by clicking on the “Customize Template” link available on the “Report Cards” > “Setup Report Cards” menu.
Finally, I should mention that the weights are applied based on the subject name, as described in the configuration options. Just make sure that the subject name contains one of the listed keywords, like “Honors” or “(HON)” or “(AP)”. Keywords are case-sensitive.
If you see a report card template that you like, but it doesn’t have the weighted GPA section that you need, come chat with us, and we may be able to add it in for you.
As always, let us know what you think. Or come chat with us anytime with questions.
