Standards: Course Weights

To import course weights, you must have standards already created and associated to courses in PowerSchool.

In the Standards: Course Weights dataset, the Parent Weight is used when calculating a final traditional grade. Modifying this weight will impact final traditional grades.

Child Weight is rolled up to the Parent Weight in final standards grades.
