School Grade Curve

Map Grades to Score Ranges

The SchoolFront gradebook produces letter grades for students by calculating a numeric grade from the scores students receive on coursework and matching this calculated numeric value to the letter grade defined in the system for the school. The following is an example of how you could configure the grade curve for High School students. This example uses "A, B, C, etc." to depict proficiency levels, but you may use something different.

In this example, if the gradebook calculated a 91 for a student based on the average grades of all of the student's coursework, the student would receive an A-.

High Score Low Score Letter Grade
100 98 A+
97 93 A
92 90 A-
89 88 B+
87 83 B
82 80 B-
79 78 C+
77 73 C
72 70 C-
69 68 D+
67 66 D
65 64 D-
63 0 F
