Figuring Grades - 67 views

  • Always convert all grades and numbers to a system of 100. It will not only be easier for you to figure out overall grades, but it will simplify your explanations to parents and administrators if they can see your grades in terms of percents.
  • FAILING GRADES BELOW "50" ALWAYS GET MARKED AS A SCORE OF "50"
  • All letter grades are converted to a numerical equivalent, equi-spaced from each other, based on a 100 point system. Then they are averaged as you would with other grades. Here is a chart you can use:

    A++ = 100 (perfect paper with extra-credit)
    A+ = 98
    A = 95
    A- = 92
    B+ = 88
    B = 85
    B- = 82
    C+ = 78
    C = 75
    C- = 72
    D+ = 68
    D = 65
    D- = 62
    F = 55

  • EXAMPLE:

    The student in the example received: 25, 80, 40, 95, 90. Average = 66%, Grade = D
    The student's grades should be converted to 50 , 80, 50 , 95, 90. Average = 73%, Grade = C, which is a better representation of grades of A, A-, B-, F, F.

Why Our Current Education System Is Failing - 0 views

  •  
    For most of my life (along with millions of other students) I have been taught to believe that the secret to a successful life is to get outstanding grades. Slowly over the years however, I have discovered this premise to be completely false.
