I'm not a fan of having to work this hard to figure out a rubric, but here are the steps to do it.

Their site says: Attendance/Participation (10%), Quizzes (50%), and the Final Exam (40%)

Go into "my profile" and you'll see your "registered courses."

Click on the drop-down menu for the course you want to see your scores for.

Quiz % will show for everything you've done.   You have to count how many quizzes to know what the "whole" is, and then from that number, subtract 2.  (if you'll take 18 quizzes you'll keep grades for 16 highest scores)

Then however many quizzes you will have grades for, you'll give each one a value of 100 points.  (a class with 18 quizzes = 16 graded quizzes = 1600 "points")

I realize this feels mathy, just bear with me.  So, your number is now = 50% of the class.  In this example, 1600 points = 50%, so I will use 3200 "points" as my whole (100%)

In this hypothetical class, if 3200 is my "whole", then 1600 points are my quizzes (50%), 320 points (10%) makes up my attendance, and 1280 points is the final (40%)

Now SAVE ALL OF THIS on paper somewhere- make a chart/graph.  Start calculating everything.

Attendance will be 10% and you'll get those points because you have to watch all the videos (fill that in as 320 in this case)

Then start doing your quizzes- we used 100, so it's super easy to do: a quiz score of 57.14% is 57.14 "points" in this sample.  A quiz score of 85.71% is 85.71 "points" and so on.  write this down as you do each quiz so you can see your running "point" score.

Final exam (blank for now) but in this sample will be worth 1280 points.

You need a passing score of 70%, so our whole point value is 3200 x 70% = 2240 points to pass.  

If this is all written down on a chart, you will be able to keep track as you go, and it should be simple adding to know how close you are to 2240 at any point in time.


Ok, so this is strange- this feature is gone.  I literally went in and calculated my son's grades, logged in today to update his last 2 scores and it's GONE.  ?!?!?! Quiz scores are no longer visible.

That's very strange. I've been using your technique to calculate my grades (so thank you) and my quiz grades are still showing up. I checked as soon as I read your post. Maybe they disappear once you get closer to the end? I can't imagine why though.

I don't have any idea. I can't see quiz scores any longer for Marketing or Cybercrime. What class are you in?

Strange, I could never see my quiz scores except for the screen right after I submit. But it's been a month or 2 since I worked on OD courses. Maybe they recently implemented that option and they're still working out the kinks.

I think you can- go through the My Profile button, then "expand all" at the top by your name, pan down without clicking on anything- they might show at the bottom.

I'm in Psychology and Cooking. I just checked again and I can still see my four Psych quiz scores and my two Cooking quiz scores. The only thing I can think of is that they updated it sometime late last night or early this morning. I was forced to log out and sign back in last night (in the middle of a class), which I thought was kind of strange, but maybe it's because they wanted everyone on the updated version. Maybe it's only certain classes being edited.
