Grading calculator

I have posted the excel grading calculator at the top of this page. Grab it and fill it in according to the instructions. For everything except the tests, you will need to take the numbers off of WebAssign (look at the category totals) and type them in the appropriate place. The WebAssign category total for “Test” is nonsense because WebAssign can’t do the dynamic weighting that we do: type in your individual test scores in the appropriate cells and the calculator will do the rest.

Cautions:

  1. The lab writeup category may not be accurate because WebAssign sticks in zeroes (or 100%) for writeup that haven’t been graded yet. You may need to adjust that one by hand.
  2. You will (obviously) need to make a best guess for Test 3 and the final exam in order to generate a letter grade. That’s up to you to estimate…
