Drop Grades by Term / Year

If I set up my grade calculations for each trimester to drop the lowest quiz score, do I then have to set up the yearly calculation to drop the lowest 3 scores for the year??  

 

A little confused because I thought that PowerSchool would just weigh the three trimesters equally.

@lamronbyhwThat will depend on how you set up the final grade for the year (commonly called Y1 in districts I work with). If you set it to Term Weighting and use the settings in the screenshot, yes, PT Pro will calculate the Y1 by evenly weighting the three Trimesters (Imagine it is T1, T2, and T3 in the "Attribute" column).
