Calculation Alerts

Calculation Alerts are generated whenever there are possible problems with elements of the Grading Algorithm.  If problems exist,  grade calculations may not be credible, and the Communications Wizard will not be operable util problems are resolved.  This topic deals with the four types of alerts.

 

 

ALERT: Code Eff Wgt% values don't total 100% appears in WC/PC if the Eff Wgt% column total is not 100%.  This is usually because one or more Categories don't yet have any assigned/graded Tasks, excluding those Category Weight%'s from the Eff Wgt% total (in this case, there are no [P] Participation Tasks).   Adding/grading Tasks in those Categories removes the alert.

ALERT: Category Weight% values don't total 100% appears in WC/PC if the Weight% column total is not 100% for any reason.  It is generally accompanied by the Code total alert because Category Weight problems affect Code Eff Wgt% calculations.  To fix the problem, double-click on any Category row and edit the Weight%.  Unless it is corrected, grade calculations won't be credible.

ACode currently missing from Teacher>Setup appears whenever a Task Code is no longer in Teacher Task Codes.  The Code could have been deleted inadvertently, or it might no longer be in use because data for a past year is being viewed.  A missing Code has no effect on grade calculations.  Adding the Code back into Teacher Task Codes removes the alert.

Category currently missing from Teacher>Setup appears in WC/PC whenever a Task Category is no longer in Teacher Task Categories. The Category could have been deleted inadvertently, or it might no longer be in use because data for a past year is being viewed.  This has no effect on grade calculations.  Adding the Category back into Teacher Task Categories removes the alert.
