The Grade Point Average (GPA) at Cab Calloway School of the Arts is a weighted average and is computed by using only the grades in the academic core courses of English, social studies, mathematics, science, world language, and any Advanced Placement course. A grade of “C” or better in an advanced placement (AP) level course where the AP examination is taken receives an additional one and one half (1.5) quality points in the computation of the GPA. A grade of “C” or better in an honors level course receives an additional quality point in the computation of the GPA. In cases where a student in an AP course chooses not to take the AP examination in May, the course designation will then be changed to “Accelerated” and only one additional quality point will be awarded. The weighted, cumulative GPA is used to determine class rank.
To determine eligibility for honor roll status, an unweighted GPA which includes grades in the core area courses only (English, math, science, social studies, and foreign language) is used. To determine district athletic eligibility, a weighted GPA which includes all grades of A, B, C, D, or F is used.
FINAL GRADE DETERMINATION
The final course grade shall be the average of the four quarter grades, each with a weight value of (2), and the mid-year and final examination grades each with a weight value of (1). Quarter and examination grades shall carry a numerical value of: A = 4; B = 3; C = 2; D = 1; F = 0.
Letter Grade Quality Points
- A = 90 – 100 4 Quality Points
- B = 80 – 89 3 Quality Points
- C = 70 – 79 2 Quality Points
- D = 60 – 69 1 Quality Points
- F = Failure Below 60 0 Quality Points
The numerical average shall be converted to a letter grade using the following scale. If the numerical grade is:
Greater than or equal to 3.50 = A
Greater than or equal to 2.5 through 3.4 = B
Greater than or equal to 1.50 through 2.4 = C
0.6, up to and including 1.4 = D
Less than 0.6 = F
- Marking period grades are C, C, C, B
- Mid-term grade: B
- Final exam grade: C
- Double marking period quality points: 4, 4, 4, 6 = 18
- Mid-term quality points: 3
- Final exam quality points: 2
- Calculation 23 divided by 10 = 2.3 grade C
Three marking period F’s constitute course failing regardless of quality points.
