Ranking

  • The quality point (QP) is defined as the product of final grade (N) obtained in the course, the number of credits (C) designated for the course and the weighting factor (W) for that course as indicated below.

     

    Class of 2027 and Class of 2028

    “AP” Level Courses:

    0.1

    “H” Level Courses and Dual Enrollment Courses:

    .01

    All Other Courses:

    Unweighted

     

    Class of 2025 and 2026

    “AP” or “H” Level Courses:

    .01

    “R” Level Courses:

    .005

    All Other Courses:

    Unweighted

    For example, if a student receives a numerical grade of 90 in a one-credit “H” level course, then the quality point (QP) would equal:

    QP = (N) x (C) x (W) = 90 x 1 x .01 = .9

    at the end of six semesters.  The total number of quality points for all courses included in the ranking would then be added to the student’s unweighted average.  It is this unweighted average plus the total number of quality points which are used to determine rank in class.
