Is there a way to Blackboard can take weighted columns and average them together? Our instructors keep grades for a 9 week period and have Bboard weight their graded activities to determine the 'grade' for that 9 week period. They do that twice per semester. They are then required to take the two nine week period averages and average those together to come up with a Semester grade. We have tried to see if creating another weighted column would allow two other weighted columns to be 'weighted' or averaged but Bboard 8 will not allow you to select weighted columns when creating a new weighted column. I understand that weighting a weighted column seems superfluous; however, that is the requirement for our pre-engineering teachers so that the students can receive college credit. In other words, not weighting a weighted column to come up with an average is not an option as it's a requirement for our teachers.
