GRADING SCALE Grading is not the main focus of education. Grades however, are a useful tool to evaluate the extent to which a student has mastered a particular skill or course. Therefore grades will be assigned in all subjects. Cambridge International Academy will assign grades in order to reflect accurately the range between true mastery and insufficient knowledge of a subject. Grade inflation is discouraged. In this scheme the following letter grades have these meanings: A – Mastery B – Proficiency C – Sufficiency (Competence) D – Insufficiency F – Failing The letter and numerical grades for this system are listed below: A 94-100%                 C 74-76 A- 90-93                      C- 70-73 B+ 87-89                      D+ 67-69 B 84-86                      D 64-66 B- 80-83                      D- 60-63 C+ 77-79                      F 00-59 Kindergarten and 1st grade variation: 0-73% is "NI" (needs improvement). All grades levels K-6 use the following scales for music and art: "S" (satisfactory), "NI" (needs improvement), or a "U" (unsatisfactory) Incompletes will only be given under special circumstances as determined by the Principal. Parents and students should always be informed of the student’s progress. GPA for grades 6 through 8 is calculated as follows: A     4.00 grade points A-    3.67 grade points B+   3.33 grade points B     3.00 grade points B-    2.67 grade points C+   2.33 grade points C     2.00 grade points C-    1.67 grade points D+   1.33 grade points D     1.00 grade points D-    0.67 grade points The weighted grade point average (WGPA) is determined by calculating the unweighted grade point average (GPA) and then adding bonus points for each weighted course in which a grade of C or better is earned. A student receives .02 bonus points for each half credit of an Honors, or Level 3 course (as designated by the Florida Department of Education’s Course Code Directory) in which a grade of C or better is earned. A student receives .04 bonus points for each half credit of an Advanced Placement in which a grade of C or better is earned.
