Teachers can set up and manage assignment types and weights for each subject or class they teach. When an assignment is added to a class, the assignment type set up for the subject that the class belongs to will be added by default. When you make changes to the assignment type, the changes only affect the subject you are editing. If you change the weight of the grades during the school year, previously entered grades will be affected.
