This grading calculator was designed to help teachers with a quick and easy way to calculate grades without having to calculate by hand.

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 and assignment with 37 questions on a scale of 0-100%. Enter 37 into the questions field, 100 in the out of, and 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%.

## About this grading calculator

This particular page started because I needed a way to quickly score Computer Science AP-A tests. For those that don’t teach AP, free response on the CS-APA exams are out of 9 points and used to be scored in half point increments (it’s just full points now). And I wanted a way to quickly map those scorings out of 100%.

To use the AP scoring as an example; questions would be 9, out of would be 100, and step would be 0.5.
