Mark

The "Mark" percentage and letter grade at the top of the screen are your overall grade average for the course in the indicated reporting period. The Mark column shows the score and percentage you earned for each individual assignment.

Note: The "Mark" percentage and/or letter grade at the top of the screen and the percentage on the individual assignment may not display depending on your teacher’s settings.

Weight

If the "Weight" of a particular type of assignment is other than “1,” this means the teacher has weighted that type of assignment to count more or less toward the overall grade.

Note: The weight only displays when viewing grades by assignment type.
