This tool is designed for instructors. Instructors often get emails from their students asking about their standing. Answering these emails and calculating the grade for each student is time consuming. The Overall Grade Calculator frees the instructor from this administrative work by allowing students to enter their own grades and the tool calculates the overall grade.
