Professor: Displaying Gradebook as Percentages vs. Points

Most professors using Top Hat prefer their students' grades recorded as percentages, but for some professors it makes more sense to have grades recorded as points rather than percentages. Should you prefer to have your Top Hat gradebook display students grades as points as opposed to percentages, simply:

  1. send an email to requesting fractional grading be applied to your course
  2. please ensure you include your course join code in the email

 Gradebook Displayed as Percentages (Default)

Gradebook Displayed as Points (Fractional Grading)
