This grading calculation was designed to help teachers with a quick and easy way to calculate grades without having to calculate by hand. If you’ve been doing this a while, it’s the same idea as the classic cardboard EZ-Graders that every teacher used to use, and some still do.

To create a grade chart, fill in the fields above and press Calculate.

Questions is the number of questions in your assignment

Out of is the final score, and will typically be 100 for a 100% assignment.

Step allows you to change the distance between questions. For example, if you want to get scores in half question increments you would enter 0.5 in step.

## Example

You’re grading an assignment with 37 questions on a scale from 0-100%. Enter 37 in the questions field, 100 in the out of, and a step of 1. Click calculate and you’ll see that Bob who got 29 out of 37 correct scored a 78%.

Another assignment also has 37 questions and again out of 100%, but this time students can get half credit. Bob’s neighbor Sue gets 33.5 total questions correct. By changing step from 1 to 0.5 you can see that Sue made a 91%.
