When you change the grading scale or assignment weighting under Grade Settings it will often not affect work that has been completed until after a change is made that makes SOS calculate the grades again (such as a student completing a project, clearing a lesson, etc...). Once a change is made, any previously completed assignments and units will adjust to the new scales. The percentage will stay the same no matter what the grading scale or assignment weighting is.
There are three places to change the Grade Settings. Normally you only need to change them in the first one but if you have, you are in a lesson that was started after changing them and it is still marked using the old grading scale, check all three places.
1. From SOS Admin, click on Administration. Now click on the box next to Edit which says Assignment Settings and a box will drop down then select Grade Settings. Make any changes there then click Save.
2. This can also be changed for the individual lessons from SOS Teacher. In SOS Teacher, click on the Lesson Book button. Next, select your student's name in the upper left corner then click on a subject next click Edit at the bottom. Now click on the dropdown box that says Assignment settings then select Grade Settings. Make any changes there then click Save then click the X in the upper right corner to close the window.
