Tips for New Faculty (3)

Time spent getting to know your LMS (learning management system) is well spent. You really DON'T want to be figuring out how your LMS aggregates grades during finals week. For example, We use Moodle. I have also used Blackboard and some others. Moodle has many choices for how it can add your grades: weighted average, non-weighted average, sum... etc. None of these are intuitive (really!). If you pick the wrong one, the students freak out because their grade appears lower than it should.
