Weightless Excel G&A

Donna Young @ 2 October 2007
Filed in Categories:
Grades and AttendanceThis Grades & Attendance file is not a weighty matter, it's just straight up grades.

The no-weight grades and attendance is not a new item, it has always been available on the youngminds website. Someone recently wrote me regarding the G&A with the test column. I could see that those who do not need to weigh grades would be better served to have the no weight G&A and it is now online at

    It worked for me. I checked sometimes. I am not really sure that I am doing it right, so it is kind of a "tressa" version of weighted grades. But, it works for me. I will have to figure something else out by high school.

    Since it worked for Tressa, maybe it is working now? I turned off wp-cache, which might have caused the problem. I`ll have to look further into the possible conflict when I do not have beautiful lavender and gray vertical bars on my screen.

    Tanya, there`s an example of grade weight here:

    laughing It worked for me, but I do not weight grades yet, although there might come a time when I do.

    Tanya asked what weighted grades were - I also wonder if homeschool moms should or should not use them. I am a beginner and I have a 9th grader...

    Adrienne, I have really never thought about if a homeschooler should or shouldn`t give more weight to some grades than others. Thinking about it just now, I`d say that it is not black and white, that it depends on the children`s grade level, courses, and if mom is giving her children special assignments that require extra work (and grade value).

    If I were to generalize, I`d suppose that high school students would be the group most likely to have their grades weighted. I started weighing test scores higher when my children were in 7th grade.

    I`ve home schooled for about 10 years so far and have another 8 years to go! I have always weighted my kids grades. Of course I am a certified Teachers Aid even though I`ve only taught my own kids. I find it encourages them to work harder, especially because they know I work hard not only setting up their day, collecting or creating curriculm but grading their work.
