|"What do I need to make on my remaining tests and assignments in order to get an A in this class, given the grades that I've already made so far?" Our college grade calculator was created to answer that question! We created this tool because every semester, students crank up their calculators in pursuit of the answer to this elusive question on their final grade. It's easy to make mistakes, though, especially if you have tests and assignments that are worth different percentages of the total grade. Well, now you can save your calculator for math class--this amazing grade calculator will tell you exactly what you need to make in order to get the grade you want! |

Step 1: Enter your scores
First of all, list the grades you have received so far. Enter the grades you havereceived into the left column; in the right column, list the percentage that each grade counts toward your finalaverage. For example, if you made a 95 on your first test and it counts 20% of the final grade, you would type
in the first row. Do not type percent signs in the right column; this willconfuse the program.
Of course, the numbers in the right column should not add to more than 100, since you cannot possiblyhave received more than 100% of your total grade.
There is room for you to type 20 grades and their corresponding weights.
An example is available if you need help.
|Step 2: Enter the minimum final average needed for each grade|
In the blue table, enter the different letter grades offered in the course (such as A, B, C, D) and the minimumfinal average required to receive each grade. Enter the letter grades in the left column and the correspondingrequired averages in the right column. For example, if you entered
this would mean that your final average must be at least 90 in order to receive an A; 80 in order to receive a B;70 in order to receive a C; and 60 in order to receive a D.
Enough space is provided for you to enter eleven different letter grades, which should provide ample roomfor schools with plus-minus grading systems.
