Quality points

John Doe’s spring ‘13 grades

To get the GPA, divide the Total Quality Points (QP) by the Total Attempted Hours

27 divided by 12 = 2.25

John Doe earned a 2.25 GPA for the Spring ‘13 semester.

Calculating quality points

John Doe’s fall ‘14 grades

Answer key to slide 4

To get the GPA, divide the Total Quality Points by the Total Attempted Hours

33 divided by 13= 2.538

John Doe has a 2.54 GPA for the Fall ‘14 semester.

*Note John’s final grades in UNIV 1000 and HIST 1010 generated the same quality points (3 QP per class) even though UNIV 1000 is a 1-hour class and HIST 1010 is a 3-hour class. This example shows the impact one low grade has on a semester a GPA.

If John had earned a final grade of “B” in HIST 1010, what would have been his fall semester GPA?
