Step-by-Step Tutorial


Follow these steps to use the weighted grade calculator

First Step : Add each assessment name

This is optional, but it’s useful to add assessment names to help you keep track of everything if it’s a complex class with many assessments. An assessment may be homework, an essay, or a quiz.

Second Step : Add your assessment grade

Add the letter grade or percentage grade for each assessment. You can use a letter grade or you can enter your score on a percentage grading system.

Third Step : Add the assessment weight

As this is a weighted grade, each assessment has a different weight over the final grade.

Fourth Step : Add more assessments

You can add more assessments to keep track of your grade as a class progresses. Then repeat the first 3 steps.

Fifth Step : Add another class

You can keep track of several classes at once by adding another class to the calculator. Then repeat the steps above for each new class so you can keep track of all your grades from one spot.

And that’s everything. The grades are automatically calculated taking into account the weight for each assessment, so you can save time and trouble, and just focus on your studies.

What is a weighted grade?

A weighted score or a weighted grade is a course where there are different elements that contribute to the final course grade, and each of them has a different weight.

For example, the grade weight of homework could be 15% of the course grade, while the final exam may represent 50%. Knowing the different grade weights in your course elements is key to be able to anticipate and calculate your grade on a weighted course. Usually, you can find this information in your class syllabus.

How can you improve your grades?

By keeping track of your performance on the different assignments of a weighted grade, you can start to see patterns in your performance. If you get fewer points in your essays, then that’s where you need to focus your effort to improve your numbers and increase the weighted average of your grade. You can discuss with your teacher other strategies or areas of improvement, and they may allow you to retake a previous assignment.

As the final exam usually has a bigger impact on the grade, you could easily improve your numbers with a great grade. But it’s better to start working early to get as many grade points as possible before you face the final exam. It’ll help you be better prepared too.
