I'm interested in dropping the lowest score of my students in two categories.
When I go to the Dop Low Scores tab
It says drops lowest score regardless of assignment weight.
So, if a student has a 3 out of 5 and a 5 out of 100, the program will drop the 3pt assignment, correct?
Is there another option where it would drop whichever score would be most favorable for the student? (The 5/100 mentioned above rather than 3/5.)
Or does it convert scores to percent before dropping? (ie. it would be 60% vs 5% in the above example and drop the 5%)
I could still see a case where dropping a 40 out of 100 would be better for a student's score than dropping a 3 out of 5.
PT Pro will convert to a percent before dropping, so you are correct when you say it will drop the 5/100 instead of the 3/5.
You are (sadly) correct when you say this could actually hurt a student average, since PT Pro inexplicably doesn't consider weight.
