Calculating Grades  

Add all points earned on tests/projects together and divide by the total number of possible points. (This will give you a test average.) The Test Average is then multiplied by .7 

Ex:

Test 1: 84 points out of a possible 100 points
Test 2: 96 points out of a possible 100 points
Test 3: 18 points out of a possible 20 points
Project 1: 43 points out of a possible 50 points 


Add what the student earned 84+96+18+43 = 241
Add the total possible points 100+100+20+50 = 270

Now divide 241 ÷ 270 = 0.89259259

Now multiply by 100 to get the percentage =89.2592593 which will be rounded to 89.3

Test/project average = 89.3 x 0.7 = 62.51


Homework grades will be multiplied by .05
If there are multiple homework grades, you will compute them the same way as explained above in the test category.

Multiply the exam grade by .25.


Adding all the totals together will give you the student's report card grade.
