There are now three different ways you can enter grades in Scholaric.
Grade entry has always been optional, you can enter no grade by marking a lesson as complete. There is a shortcut for this by holding the CTRL key while clicking on the lesson in the planning grid. This will mark it as complete if you have entered time for the lesson.
Grade entry has always been done by entering what I call a "Grade expression". This means that rather than having a field for number of points and a field for the number of points possible, we have one field for grade. This promises a lot of future flexibility in how we enter grades.
Up until now there has been two ways to enter grades:
First as a fraction - indicating number of points awarded and possible with a slash separating:
Note that partial credit is possible as well:
Second as a raw percentage - indicating a simple percent awarded:
Note that this is identical to entering as a fraction with a 100 denominator:
As of today, you now have the option to enter your grades as a negative fraction - indicating the number of points missed and the total number of points possible. Scholaric then does the subtraction for you.
This would be identical to entering 44/53.
