You can determine your final grade in the course by using the following method.
First, convert your individual assignment grades into numerical values using the following scale:
Grade |
Value |
A |
4.0 |
A- |
3.7 |
B+ |
3.3 |
B |
3.0 |
B- |
2.7 |
C+ |
2.3 |
C |
2.0 |
C- |
1.7 |
D+ |
1.3 |
D |
1.0 |
E |
0.0 |
Second, weight your assignment grades. Multiply the numerical grade for the assignment by the percentage of the final grade. For instance, if you earned a B on a paper that was worth 25% of the grade, you would multiply 3.0 by .25, which equals .75.
Assignment | Grade | |||
Third, total the weighted grades. For instance, if each of the four graded assignments in the course are worth 25% of the final grade, and you earned a B, B+, A-, and A, respectively, on them, then your final, numerical grade would be 3.50
1.00 |

Grade | From | To |
A | 3.85 | 4.00 |
A- | 3.50 | 3.84 |
B+ | 3.15 | 3.49 |
B | 2.85 | 3.14 |
B- | 2.50 | 2.84 |
C+ | 2.15 | 2.49 |
C | 1.85 | 2.14 |
C- | 1.50 | 1.84 |
D+ | 1.15 | 1.49 |
D | 0.85 | 1.14 |
E | 0.00 | 0.84 |
