How I Update Your Grade
Every weekend, I update your grade on Synergy.
Here is how I do it:
Imagine that you have five jars of marbles. Each marble represents one point.
Quia  Writing Portfolio 
Typing Club 
Independent Reading 
Class Activities 
 In the first jar, you have all the points that you have earned from doing autograded quizzes.
 In the second jar, you have all the points that you've earned from writing in your writing portfolio.
 In the third jar, you have all the points that you've earned from doing Typing Club.
 In the fourth jar, you have all the points that you've earned from independent reading.
 In the last jar, you have all the points that you've earned from participating in class activities (discussions, games, etc.)
As a practical matter, the way I update your grade is this:
First, I pour all the marbles into the Quia jar.

I do this so that all your points are now in one place, and that makes them easier to count. (Quia counts them for me).
Next, I tell Synergy how many marbles you have, in total. 


And finally, I update the denominator of the fraction on Synergy.
