marking algorithm
Marking Algorithm

A = mark on assignments (out of 100)

M = mark on midterm exam (out of 100)

F = mark on final exam (out of 100)

  •  EM = 0.75F +0.25M
  •  To pass the course, EM must be equal to, or greater than, 50
marking algorithm24
 Marking Algorithm
  • To calculate the final letter grade (FLG) for the course:
    • LG(EM) = letter grade corresponding to the numeric mark EM
    • next_up_LG(EM) = letter grade immediately above LG(EM)
    • next_down_LG(EM) = letter grade immediately below LG(EM)
  • If EM >= 50, then
    • FLG = next_up_LG(EM) if A >= 75
    • FLG = LG(EM) if (50 <= A <75)
    • FLG = next_down_LG(EM) if A < 50, unless causes a failure,

in which case FLG =LG(EM)
