What is the Final Grade Calculator?
The Final Grade Calculator is an online grade calculator built to calculate average and mean grades for college finals. It helps as a predictor of sorts to help students know what their final grade will be if tests get at least a certain score. If finals were made up of just one class this calculation would be simple but usually most college students end up with three to four classes and multiple mid-terms and finals.
Additionally most classes are graded differently from each other making it increasingly difficult to measure and grade all finals together for an average semester grade. The Final Grade Calculator helps with this issue by allowing students to enter in current grades for classes and remaining tests to be taken giving a calculation of what a student needs to score for a passing grade or above average grade.
How does the Final Grade Calculator Work?
The Final Grade Calculator takes data entered by you and gives you a result using basic math in a semi complex way. The basic math is illustrated with this equation:
Grade = Exam Worth × Exam Score + (1 – Exam Worth) × Current Grade
To break it down we will use one example:
If you have and english class that you have completed all but the final on and your current grade in the class is a C or 70% then you would enter 70 in the first column. The second column you would enter the desired grade you want at the end of the class which for our example lets say is a 90% so you can get and A. The last column which is very important is the weight your final has so if the teacher says its worth 20% of your final grade enter that in.The answer if these were your credentials would be that you need 170% on your final to get an A in the class. Probably not probable unless your teacher is going to give you extra credit.
Now if you were lucky enough for your final to be worth 80% of your overall grade you would need a 95% on the grade instead of a 170%. You can use the finals grade calculator to calculate more than one class at a time as well. Usually teachers will give out multiple assignments, quizzes, tests etc throughout the semester. The Final Grade Calculator will actually allow you to calculate all of your course load at once to determine how well you need to do in each one based on where you are now.
Final Grade Calculator Results
The results of the calculator will displayed below where the calculator form sits. The page will reload and depending on your browser or device you may have to scroll to see your results. We have done our best to mark the results properly but make sure to scroll through the page to view your results before getting frustrated and re-calculating.
For your convenience we have also included buttons for you to go back with your saved data and adjust your calculation so that if you made a minor mistake you won’t have to re-enter all of your data again. Additionally we have added a button for you to go back with all your data cleared so you can calculate for another class. It is recommended that you enter in a small amount of data at first to test the calculator before entering in your entire class information in case of error.
The biggest complaint we run into is loss of data and requirement for students to re-enter their data so please test the calculator first and then use the go back with data in place button to re-calculate your grade if you have any issues.
