GRADE POINT AVERAGE AND CLASS RANK CALCULATION

Grade point averages (GPA) and class rank are important to students seeking scholarships, financial assistance and other post secondary endeavors. GPA and class rank are calculated using a system of levels and credits.

Each academic and selective course is assigned the appropriate level based on the rigor of the curriculum and the performance expectations: generally honors courses are rated at level five, mainstream courses are rated at level one and courses with modified curriculum and/or performance expectations are rated at level three. For the purposes of calculating GPA only, each level is assigned a specific weight. It is important to note that levels do not affect the grade published on a student’s report card and Honor Roll status. Levels provided a means of accurately calculating class rank for a diverse population. Levels may, also, be utilized to adjust for an individual with significant modifications to his/her course expectations. GPA and class rank are calculated by multiplying a student’s adjusted class averages by the corresponding credit value, adding the points for all courses and then dividing by the total number of attempted credits.
 
If a student enters Diman as a sophomore or junior, his/her transferred grades will be converted to GPA.
 
Questions about ranking should be directed to the Pupil Personnel Services Office 508-678-2891 extension 1500 or 1510.
