Anybody knows the formula?

Question:Instructor said, our tests are 80 % of grades, and home work - 20%. How do they calculate the grade in the end of semester? I am just slow thinker this week.

Answers:
Most instructors who follow this format just allocate the points that way: 800 points for exams, 200 points for homework. Then, at the end of the semester, they can use cut-offs for A's (900-1000), B's (800-900), etc. Some professors will adjust their cut-off points depending on the class performance.

Otherwise, if the instructor doesn't follow that format, they can take your total exam scores, multiply it by 0.80, add it to your homework scores multiplied by 0.20. Again, the instructor will have to assign cut-off regions depending on class performance.

Hope that is helpful!
