# Overview

This article aims to provide you with an understanding of how Scaled Grades are being calculated.

# Reference Information

## Individual Assessments

For each assessment, divide the score by the max value and convert to a letter grade and point value based on the following:

For example:

Assignment #1: 17/24 = 70.8% = C = 3

Assignment #2: 12/18 = 66.7% = D = 2

## Overall Grade Without Weighting

Find the sum of products of the point value and max score and divide by the sum of all the max scores.

Using the example above:

((24 × 3) + (18 × 2)) / (24 + 18)

(72 + 36) / 42

108 / 42

2.57

The overall scaled score translates to a letter grade using the following:

## Overall Grade With Weighting

Use the above method to calculate the overall scaled score per category, then use those values in the normal weighted grade calculations.

For example:

(2.45 × 0.3) + (3.00 × 0.2) + (2.00 × 0.5)

0.735 + 0.60 + 1.00

2.34 = C
