Grades don't add up?

Posted: Sat Sep 11, 2010 1:39 am



Okay here's the situation in my geometry class:

The start of the 6 weeks, I turn in a homework (100 pts) and get a 50% on the first quiz (i know its bad). Then I check my grade and it's a 60% in the class.

Later, I turn in another homework and get a 100% on the next quiz to find out that I have an 80% in the class.

I turn 3 more homeworks and get a 91% on the first TEST. My new grade is an 85%.

I turn in a homework assignment on get a 95% on the next TEST. And I find out...

My current grade is an 87%? how?

Weight system (if thats what you call it):

Tests = 55% of 6 week grade
Quizzes = 35%
Homework = 10%
Apparently everything is out of 100 points.

Does this add up to be an 87%?

It sounds like tests are weighted more heavily than homework.

Weighted grading is sick and cruel.

yeah, your teacher is right. i calculated 87.4%

that first quiz grade is what's messing you up.
since you got 50% on the first and 100% on the second, that's an average of 75%
if you take 75% of 35%(the amount of your total grade from quizzes), that comes out to 26.25%. so you're losing 8.75% because of that quiz.
And then the other 3.85% is because of the points lost on tests.
Hopefully if you have more quizzes and do well on them it'll bring it up

good luck!
