I am having a hard time calculating semester grades. I am trying to place all grades into one of two groups... tests/quizzes and classwork/homework. I added all grades then multiplied by .5. Some of the grades do not look correct. Can you tell me if I am doing this right? I have asked my accountability group, but no response yet! Thanks for any help!

Christine, I did mine a little different. I just added up one column. Then I added up the other column. Then I averaged the two columns (add them together and divide by two.)

Also, I don't know your state law is, but you only have to calculate grades like that if it is required by your state law. You don't have to do it just for you, and you don't have to do it for colleges either.
