Thanks to Marianella Estripeaut (Cypress Bay HS), Margaret Fennell (Coral Glades HS), Tracy M. Greenbaum (Coral Glades HS), and Ralph A. Aiello (Broward Schools Coordinator of Guidance) for providing information about grade calculations.

Further thanks to Mr. Adam Cohen of South Broward HS for linking to it on the South Broward web site.

This page calculates grades using the same methodology as Broward County, FL Public Schools. Grade tables are below, followed by the calculation procedure.

Regardless of point values, if the "2/3" rule is violated, the final grade is "F" for Semester grades only.

Procedure:
Note: You could use the Rotator Calculator to find Quarter grades for Block Schedules. To do this set both class grades in the Rotator Calculator to the same as the class grade you received for the Block Schedule quarter. Because some may find this confusing, I have provided separate calculators for Block and Rotator schedules.

Block Schedule - to find the Quarter Grade:
  1. TWO OUT OF THREE RULE
    Regardless of anything below, any student with a class grade of "F" receives an "F" for the quarter. This happens because in Block schedules the quarterly class grade really counts as two grades. Therefore an "F" on the class grade means you have failed two out of 3 elements.

  2. Determine a letter grade for the class and the final/midterm exam using the normal grade ranges in Table 1.

  3. Use Table 2 to assign a point value to the Class and Exam grade. The possible point range for the class grade is from zero through 24 points, while the exam contributes from 0 to 8 points (25% of the total points).

  4. Total the points from the class and the exam.

  5. Find the letter grade corresponding to the above total in Table 3, subject to the 2/3 rule.
Rotator or A/B Block Schedule - to find the Semester Grade:
  1. TWO OUT OF THREE RULE
    Regardless of anything below, any student with two (or three) out of the three grades as "F" receives an "F" for the semester.

  2. Determine a letter grade for each quarter and the final/midterm exam using the grade ranges in Table 1.

  3. Use Table 2 to assign a point value to each Quarter or Exam grade. The possible point range for the semester is from zero through 32 points. Each quarter contributes from 0 to 12 points (37.5% of the total points ), while the exam contributes from 0 to 8 points (25% of the total points).

  4. Total the points from the two quarters and the exam.

  5. Find the letter grade corresponding to the above total in Table 3, subject to the 2/3 rule.
Classes with an EOC - to find the Final Course Grade:
  1. TWO OUT OF THREE RULE
    Not used for EOC classes.

  2. Determine a letter grade for each quarterly Class grade using the grade ranges in Table 1.

  3. Use Table 4 to assign a point value to the EOC (End Of Course) exam. Note that the only possible grades on the EOC are letter grades D, C, B, A. There are no grades of F, D+, C+, or B+.

  4. Use Table 5 to assign a point value to each quarterly Class grade, MidTerm exam, and EOC.

  5. Total the points from the four Class grades, the MidTerm Exam, and the EOC grade.

  6. Find the letter grade for the course corresponding to the above total in Table 6.
