Calculating Your Grade
Most grades are basically fractions:

To calculate your grade for your portfolio, all you need to do is plug in the numbers:
 The numerator (top number) is the total number of points that you have earned for your portfolio. (Total word count ÷ 5).
 The denominator (bottom number) is 60. That's the total number of points that I have assigned (up to this point in time). In other words, it's the number of points that an A+ student would have.

Now you're just a few steps away from calculating your grade:
Step 1:
Convert this fraction into a percentage. In other words, divide the top number by the bottom number, and then multiply by 100. (Don't forget: To multiply by 100, simply slide the decimal point two places to the right.)
For example:
 50/60 = 50 ÷ 60 = .83
 .83 x 100 = 83%
Step 2:
Convert your percentage into a letter grade, using the following table:
Greater than 90% 
A 
80–89% 
B 
70–79% 
C 
60–69% 
D 
Less than 60% 
F
