New Score Calculation option in SBG

We’ve added a new Score Calculation option (i.e. Grading Scale for SBG) to the Standards-Based Gradebook (SBG) that respects that total number of points assigned to each assessment, similar to how the numeric Gradebook calculates formulas and the final grade based on total points in each assignment. The new Score Calculation is called “Weighted average by category and assessment“:

for Standards-Based Gradebook

As with other Score Calculations, the settings can be set school-wide under “Grading Setup” > “Standards-Based Setup”, or can be overridden in each subject:
