Grading Final Revised Work
While there is no mandated grading conversion table, the following model captures one example of how to convert letter grades to numerics for grading purposes.
A+ = 98-100
A = 94-97
A- = 90-93
B+ = 87-89
B = 84-86
B- = 80-83
C+ = 77-79
C = 74-76
C- = 70-73
D+ = 67-69
D = 64-66
D- = 60-63
F = < 60
