Weighted scoring model to determine grades for a course

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.
