Create a weighted scoring model to determine grades for a course. Final grades are based on three exams worth 20 percent, 15 percent, and 25 percent, respectively; homework is worth 15 percent; and a group project is worth 25 percent.

Assume Student 1 earns 100 percent (or 100) on every item. Assume Student 2 earns 70 percent on each of the exams, 80 percent on the homework, and 95 percent on the group project. Assume Student 3 earns 90 percent on Exam 1, 80 percent on Exam 2, 75 percent on Exam 3, 80 percent on the homework, and 70 percent on the group project.

You can use the weighted scoring model template, create your own spreadsheet, or make the matrix by hand.

Sample Weighted Scoring Model to Determine Grades

Create a weighted scoring model. Final grades are based on three exams worth 15%, 20%, and 25%, respectively; homework is worth 20%; and a group project is worth 20%.

Enter scores for three students. Assume Student 1 earns 100% (or 100) on every item. Assume Student 2 earns 80% on each of the exams, 90% on the homework, and 95% on the group project. Assume Student 3 earns 90% on Exam 1, 75% on Exam 2, 80% on Exam 3, 90% on the homework, and 70% on the group project.
