Grade Estimator Worksheet
If the calculator above isn't enough information for you, keep reading!
Your grade for this course is calculated in the following method:
The average of five grades (Final Exam, Quiz/HW Average, Test 1, Test 2 and the
highest of these four grades) is worth 90% of your grade. I double the highest of
these four grades to reward hard work. Your attendance / participation grade is
worth 10% of your grade. (See the formula below if it helps!)
Since you haven't taken the final yet, you don't know that grade.
So use the worksheet below to estimate your grade, using different values for the
final exam. Use your actual scores for the quiz/hw average and the test grades. Use a general figure
of a 90 for the attendance/participation grade. (If you have perfect attendance and
have asked/answered questions in class, make it a 100. If you have many absences and
have had no class participation, put a 50). When you have entered all the grades, along
with a guess on what you might make of the final exam, press the "Calculate" button
to see what you would get for your course grade. If you don't know your quiz grades,
send me an email and I'll get them to you!
Course Grade =
10% * (Att/Part Grade) +
|90% * (Final + Quiz-Avg + T1 + T2 + Highest of these four ) / 5
