Calculate Your Child's GPA

  • How to Calculate a West Middle Quarterly Average

    Not every class is weighted the same amount in Middle School.  Classes are weighted based on the length of the course, with full year classes being weighted a full 1.00.  Generally, if a class is running every other day, then it is weighted at 0.50. 

    Below is an example of how to calculate your child’s quarterly average:

     

    Class        Q1 Average         Weighting           Calculating Average

    Chorus               95                      0.50                          47.5

    Orchestra          100                     0.50                          50

    Science              95                      1.00                          95

    PE                      98                      0.50                          49

    Writing              98                      1.00                          98

    Math                  96                      1.00                          96

    Reading              93                     1.00                          93

    Social Studies     94                     1.00                          94


    Calculating Average   ÷   Total Weighting = Quarterly Average

    622.5/6.5 = 95.77
