Question

I noticed that teachers who use "Point system in power school' will just add all of the earmed points /total possible points, however there is a huge discrepancy in the average if we compute the percentage/ # of tests or categories. It seems that the point system will only benefit students who are getting consistent 100 the others will have 2 to 6 points difference in their averages.

I am not sure about the impact of levels compared to points but grades should not be
determined by calculating the average. Teachers should look for the student's most consistent
level with emphasis on the MORE (not most) recent.
