Academic Settings / Marking Settings / General Settings / Marking / Lecturers Rights / Allow Lecturers to run auto calculation of term marks
This setting is used for teachers and allows them to automatically calculate the term marks for the subjects they teach.
By activating this setting, the “Auto-calculate Term Marks” button appears in the selected subject of the class in the portal of the teacher.
This function is useful because the calculated marks will be automatically saved in the Gradebook.
- The subjects for which the automatic calculation will be performed must have a marking scenario, as shown in Figures 1 and 2
- The marking criteria that will participate in the calculation of the final mark must be strictly auto-calculated, as shown in Figure 3
