## Denton ISD Grade Scale

In each course, students are assessed using a percentage scale. Here’s a detailed breakdown:

**A (90-100%)**: Excellent**B (80-89%)**: Good**C (70-79%)**: Satisfactory**F (Below 70%)**: Failing

For example, if a student receives the following grades in a semester:

Assignment | Grade (%) |
---|---|

Homework | 85 |

Quiz | 78 |

Project | 92 |

Exam | 88 |

To calculate the final grade, follow these steps:

- Convert each grade to a percentage.
- Add all the percentages together.
- Divide the total by the number of grades.

For example, if a student receives grades of 85%, 78%, 92%, and 88%, you would add these percentages together (85 + 78 + 92 + 88 = 343). Then, divide the total by the number of grades (343 / 4), which equals 85.75%.

**Final Grade: 85.75% (B)**
