Rolling average of a measure by day of week

I have a measure that calculates the percent of table records meeting a threshold and I need to get the average of this measure for the last 4 occurrences of each weekday.

 

MEASURE = CALCULATE(COUNTROWS(ReportTable),ReportTable[Seconds] < 16) / COUNTROWS(ReportTable)

 

I have a rolling average of this measure that calculates the last 30 days:

30 DAY AVG =

VAR DateFilter =
DATESINPERIOD(
DateTable[Date],
MAX(DateTable[Date]),
-30,
DAY
)
VAR RollingSum =
CALCULATE(SUMX(ReportTable,[Measure])/COUNTROWS(ReportTable),DateFilter)
 
RETURN
RollingSum
 
My date table has day of week but it can't be used in DATESINPERIOD. I've tried a lot of different things but I'm stuck.
 
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I was able to figure it out. Added a values filter to the calculate portion of the measure. It seems so obvious now.

Last 4 DoW = 

VAR DateFilter =
DATESINPERIOD(
DateTable[Date],
MAX(DateTable[Date]),
-28,
DAY
)

VAR RollingSum =
CALCULATE(SUMX(ReportTable,[Measure])/COUNTROWS(ReportTable),DateFilter,VALUES(DateTable[DayofWeek]))
 
RETURN
RollingSum

@Oceanbagel , You need to have measure like examples

 

Rolling 30 = calculate(AverageX(Values('Date'[Date]),[Measure]),DATESINPERIOD('Date'[Date ],MAX('Date'[Date ]),-30,DAY))

 

Rolling 30 = calculate(AverageX(Values('Date'[Week Day]),[Measure]),DATESINPERIOD('Date'[Date ],MAX('Date'[Date ]),-30,DAY))

@amitchandak , thanks for helping with this. Unfortunately this is still giving the average over 30 successive days. I'm trying to get the average for the last 4 Sundays, Mondays, etc.
