Once you have created grade categories in your gradebook, you can set a weight for each of them. To do this, navigate to your Gradebook, then click on the Settings icon in the top right corner.
This will open a submenu, click on Setup.
From this view, you will click the box to the right of the Category you wish to weight, under the column Weights. Type the weight you’d like to assign to the category within the box.
When you’ve finished adjusting category weights, scroll to the bottom of the page and click Save Changes.
Now the total grade for each student will be calculated based on the weight you have assigned each category.
