You can determine your final grade in the course by using the following method.

First, convert your individual assignment grades into numerical values using the following scale:

 Grade Value A 4.0 A- 3.7 B+ 3.3 B 3.0 B- 2.7 C+ 2.3 C 2.0 C- 1.7 D+ 1.3 D 1.0 E 0.0

Second, weight your assignment grades. Multiply the numerical grade for the assignment by the percentage of the final grade. For instance, if you earned a B on a paper that was worth 25% of the grade, you would multiply 3.0 by .25, which equals .75.

Third, total the weighted grades. For instance, if each of the four graded assignments in the course are worth 25% of the final grade, and you earned a B, B+, A-, and A, respectively, on them, then your final, numerical grade would be 3.50

 Assignment Grade Grade Weight Final Value Exam 1 B 3.0 .25 .750 Exam 2 B+ 3.3 .25 .825 Paper 1 A- 3.7 .25 .925 Paper 2 A 4.0 .25 1.00 FINAL GRADE 3.50

Fourth, use the following numerical range to determine your final letter grade in the course. For instance, 3.50 equals an A- in the course.

 Grade From To A 3.85 4.00 A- 3.50 3.84 B+ 3.15 3.49 B 2.85 3.14 B- 2.50 2.84 C+ 2.15 2.49 C 1.85 2.14 C- 1.50 1.84 D+ 1.15 1.49 D 0.85 1.14 E 0.00 0.84
