The Simple GPA report was created to enable districts to easily run a GPA report for schools that don't have course credits and grade points associated with their classes. GPA can be calculated differently depending on your district. However, the Simple GPA report uses a standard calculation.
How is GPA calculated?
GPA = the average of total grade points.
Grade Point = a numerical value assigned to a letter grade.
The following example shows marking period one grades for an elementary student.
Grade Points: A = 4, B = 3, C = 2, D = 1, F = 0
|Class||Letter Grade||Numerical Grade||Grade Points|
- The grade points are added together and divided by the total number of classes. In this case, there are four classes.
- (4 + 3 + 2 + 3) = 12
- 12/4 = 3
- 3 is equivalent to a B. So, the simple GPA for this student is a B.
