In this tutorial we will store point totals in a Point Total Category that we already created.
If you need a refresher on Point Total Categories, check this out - ATLAS Gradebook - Adding a point total category
Let's begin by navigating from our Course Term Home
to the Grade Calculations
Once in Grade Calculations - let's select the Store Overall Point Totals
When the page loads we see a preview of the scores after they run through our Grade Calculation Formula.
The newly calculated grade will appear in the New Total column of the table.
Since we're happy with these grades, let's select a Point Total Category from the drop-down.
Based on what we entered when adding Point Total Categories, we can select from Midterm and Final.
To save these point totals to the "Final Grade" Point Total Category - select the Save Totals button.
Let's move to the Course Term Home
and navigate into the Point Total Categories
When we look in the Final Grade row of the Point Total Categories, we can see column titled "Last Date Calculated."
This time-stamp displays the date for the Save Point Totals action we just accomplished.
It's important to note that nothing in this process saves the parameters of the Grade Calculation Formula.
That means that if you make changes to the Grade Calculation Formula and save them - there won't be a record of what the configuration was before the save.
