G&A 2 Points Version 2
G stands for Grades. A stands for Attendance. 2 tells you this is a 2-weighted grader. Version 2 indicates that this file is different enough from version one to go up a version number.
This grader is just like the weighted version called Points except for two things ...
File Updated September 19, 2010 to fix a QP bug.
Two other changes were made, both related to convenience.
What is Different in Version 2
On each subject sheet
- You can choose from 2 Grade Scales. This allows you to assign a different grade scale to a class with educational content that requires or justifies a different scale.
- You can choose from 3 QP scales. This allows you to award AP and Honor quality points.

The default settings are Scale 1 and GPA. Those settings should work for most classes. The alternate settings are for exceptions such as AP and Honors classes and/or for classes that use a different grading scale.

The Number next to Year
In this file after September 19, 2010 update- There is a number next to the Year. It is circled in the image below. This is a drop-down list and should equal how many months that you think the school year will last. The number affects the end month/year date. In the image below that is May 2011. Change the 9 to a 10 and it will be 10 months after the starting month/year.
Later The Subject Rows "Could" Have Color
In this file after September 19, 2010 update- If your student is taking an honors class or an AP class and if you need to record the class as such, then you may on each of the subject sheets. What happens next on the Information sheet is that the subjects that are either honors or ap will have a different background color.
