1. Add Your Letter Grade
You can select your current letter grade or experiment with a grade estimate to figure out your GPA. To get your grade, you can ask your teacher, as most are happy to give you your grade before the final report card. However, for the grades you cannot confirm, you can estimate and choose a grade. Grades can range from A+ to an F on the 4.0 Scale. For each class, choose a letter grade from the drop-down menu.
2. Add Your Class Credits
Enter the grade and earned credit for each class. For example, if you have earned A for a 4 credit class, then enter 4 in the box next to the “A.” You can add both weighted and unweighted high school classes. Your weighted classes receive extra points on the GPA scale. Unweighted classes are regular and do not carry any extra points.
Continue to enter counts of all your grades earned in coursework. Your “Semester GPA” is calculated and shown above “Add another class” button. Your GPA will be calculated for all the subjects and grades you enter. It’s alright if you have fewer than 5 classes to enter. If you have more than 5 classes, you can click the “Add another class” button as many times as you need. Add “Add another semester” button if you need to add more semester.
3. Calculate Your GPA
Your “Overall GPA” for all semesters is calculated and shown at the bottom of the class list below “Add another semester” button – it’s that easy! The semester GPA and aggregate cumulative GPA will keep updating at the bottom of the page as you keep adding letter grade and class weight. You can add multiple semesters to figure out aggregate and per semester weighted GPA. Follow these steps and you’re well on your way to creating your very own report card!
Updating your GPA throughout the year will enable you to see if you are on track to reach your education goals. The feedback you get when you figure out your cumulative GPA score will let you know if you need to make adjustments in your study habits for assignments, review, and exams.
