| Daily assignments – 20% of grade Tests – Chapter, Midterm, Final – 80% of gradeGrading Scale A = 90-100% B = 80-89% C = 70-79% D = 60-69% F = 0-59% |

**Daily Assignments **

Scores: 88/90; 92/100; 90/95

- Divide points earned by points possible:

88/90 = .98; 92/100 = .92; 90/95 = .95

- Multiply by 100 to get a percentage: (You can omit this step if you prefer to work with decimals.)

.98 x 100 = 98% .92 x 100 = 92% .95 x 100 = 95%

- Calculate the average for the Daily Assignments by adding the percentages (or decimals) and then dividing by the number of assignments:

98% + 92% + 95% = 285% 285% / 3 = **95%**

**Test scores**

Scores: 89/100; 90/95; 87/90

- Divide points earned by points possible:

89/100 = .89 90/95 = .95 87/90 = .97

- Multiply by 100 to get a percentage: (You can omit this step if you prefer to work with decimals.)

.89 x 100 = 89% .95 x 100 = 95% .97 x 100 = 97%

- Calculate the average for the Tests by adding the percentages (or decimals) and then dividing by the number of tests.

89% + 95% +97% = 281 281 / 3 =** 94%**

**Weight the Daily Assignments and Tests**

- Multiply the average of the daily assignment scores and the test scores by the weights given: Daily assignments: 95% x 20% = 19% Tests: 94% x 80% = 75%
- Add the weighted scores: 19% + 75% = 94%
- Assign the grade according to Grading Scale: A
