Flexible Averaging and Rounding
You have complete control over the weighting process in Candle. For example, in Math I want Homework 20%, Quizzes 20%, and Tests 60%. But in 7th Grade Reading, Homework should count as 30%… and in 10th Grade Health, Tests really should have 80%…
Did we mention the plethora of rounding options? Even rounding, (staticians rounding) odd rounding, avoid 100% options, and more.
