My professor weighs grades as follows: Exams: 50% Homework: 25% Discussion: 15% Paper: 10% I was wondering if anyone knew how he is calculating grades right now, since our papers and discussions have not been graded yet. In other words, only the 50% from our tests and the 25% from our homework is part of our grade right now, yet he posts grades regularly. What is he doing with the 25% of our grade that has not been considered yet? Reply
