You release the calculated final grade to Frank. It is calculated as follows:

Calculation

Project 1

= 6/5*100

= 120%

Project 2

= 8/5*100

= 160%

Project 3

= 9/10*100

= 90%

Project 4

= 8/10*100

= 80%

Project 5

= 15/15*100

= 100%

Project 6

= Dropped

Note: Dropped grade items are not included in calculations; grades are calculated as if the item does not exist.

Bonus

= 10/10*100

= 100%

= (6+8+9+8+15)/(5+5+10+10+15)*100+10

= 46/45*100+10

= 112.22%

= 100%

###### Scenario 2: Final calculated grade using Weighted system

You are teaching an introductory science course in which users are graded on four labs, their participation in discussion topics, and a final examination. You allow users to drop their lowest grade on a lab. You also provide bonus grades to users who act as moderators for discussion topics. If a user does not submit a lab, you leave it ungraded and treat ungraded items as a grade of 0.

You set up grade items and a Labs category with the following properties:

Labs Lab 1 Lab 2 Lab 3 Lab 4 Discussions Moderator Exam

You release the calculated final grade to Frank. It is calculated as follows:

Lab 1

= Dropped

Note: Dropped grade items are not included in calculations; grades are calculated as if the item does not exist.

Lab 2

= 8/10*25/(25+25+25)*100

= 26.67% towards the category

= 26.67*.5

= 13.33% towards the final grade

Note: Lab 1 is worth 33.33% of the Labs category even though it is assigned a weight of 25%. This is because the lowest lab grade is dropped and there are only three labs contributing to the category.

Lab 3

= 0/10*25/(25+25+25)*100

= 0% towards the category

= 0*.5

= 0% towards the final grade

See the note for Lab 1.

Lab 4

= 7/10*25/(25+25+25)*100

= 23.33% towards the category

= 23.33*.5

= 11.67% towards the final grade

See the note for Lab 1.

Discussions

= 8/10*10

= 8% towards the final grade

Moderator

= 3/5*5

= 3% on top of the final grade
