What do I do when a student transfers in?
When a student transfers in during a quarter already in session, the transfer grade MUST be entered into Pinnacle in order to get a correct quarter and semester average.
Create an assignment named TRANSFER GRADE and enter the grade the student transfers in with.
How much weight you apply to this transfer grade is a building decision. This can be accomplished by changing the SCORE WEIGHT to whatever is applicable when creating the assignment. The default is Score Weight = 1. This means this assignments counts one time. Whatever number is assigned, is the number of times the assignment will count.
