I'm trying to export the cumulative, weighted GPA for all of my high school students. I have all the HS students selected and am doing a Quick Export. Here is what I have entered in the Quick Export field:
^(*gpa method="weighted" type="cumulative")
It produces results for all of my students; my issue is that it does not seem to be their weighted GPA. When I check the transcript of one of the students who has a 4.0 on the export, it shows a 4.0833.
Can someone explain what I am missing?
Sorry - the transcript shows a 4.0 for the cumulative and a 4.0833 for the weighted.
You can try checking in the GPA troubleshooter in PowerTools that would allow you to see a student's GPA should be based on particular methods.
Where is this PowerTools that you mention?
If you are using PowerSource, you can access PowerTools. It is a plugin with lots of data validation reports. These reports can be helpful to resolve attendance issues as well as other issues where having accurate data is needed.
