    You can look up grading scales to see which one you want to use.
    Here is an example: https://pages.collegeboard.org/how-t...-gpa-4.0-scale

    Hi, David. The reports are for parent information. All of the online computer-scored work appears there. Many parents also consider worksheets they have scored themselves, writing assignments they have graded, and so forth when calculating a letter grade for their child (which is not necessary in most states, but a good idea if you have a high school student, so you can prepare a transcript).

    Even in public schools, teachers using the same curriculum may each have different grading methods. Some teachers give extra weight to tests. Some only use tests. Some do pass/fail on homework. Others grade "on a curve", comparing each student's score to those of all students in the class. There are many methods. Should you choose to calculate a letter grade, Time4Learning gives you the raw information they have (your child's percentage scores on computer-scored work), which you then combine with anything else to come up with a "grade" your preferred way.

    Another variation is that some parents include the scores of all attempts at an activity in the grade and others drop all but the highest score.

    I hope this helps you decide on a grading method that is a good fit for you and your student.

    Mom of six . . . current students and homeschool graduates. Enjoying using Time4Learning since 2006!
