  • 4.5 - good
  • 4.0 - satisfactory
  • 3.5 - sufficient
  • 0.01 to 3.5 - fail
  • 0.0 - disqualified/not entered

Grades are calculated using the following formula: 5*(pointsScored/maxPointsPossible)+1 As an example, a student with an 78% on a test would go through the following formula: 5*(78/100)+1 , which equals a 4.9.
