# Using Test Weights Only

To turn on **Test Weighting**, click the box for **Weight Tests.** Weights are then entered in the Weight row directly on the spreadsheet. A common practice is to weight assignments by doubling some of the scores in the calculation. This was accomplished by entering a 1 for all daily assignments and a 2 for tests.

In this case, the percent score the student received (score/points possible) is multiplied by the weight. All the results are summed and then divided by the sum of the weights.

### Calculation

Assignment 1 75/100 = .75 * 2 = 1.50

Assignment 2 20/20 = 1.00 * 1 = 1.00

Assignment 3 9/10 = .90 * 1 = .90

Assignment 4 92/100 = .92 * 2 = 1.84

Assignment 5 18/20 = .90 * 1 = .90

Assignment 6 15/15 = 1.00 * 1 = 1.00

**Total 7.14 / 8 = .8925 * 100 = 89.25**

When Test Weighting is used the weights appear in the **Weight** row for each assignment. Weights are determined by the number in the weight row and not by the possible points. Therefore, if the weight in the **Weight** row is the same then 2 assignments will have the same weight regardless of the number of possible points.
