I teach history to four different groups of students that, in my spreasheet, I have labeled "1", "2", "3", and "4." The number of the group to which each student belongs is listed in CK2:CK100

Each quarter, I give all students a test and list the corresponding score next to each student's name. The scores are listed in CM2:CM100.

The name of each student appears in CL2:CL100.

I am looking for the formulas to extract the highest five scores in each group starting at CS2. So CS2 would contain the value of the highest score obtained by a student in group 1, CS3 the second highest score in that group and so on through group 4.

I have 3 test scores for each student. Currently, I have 3 students.

For example :

John 95 90 85 Cindy 50 60 100 Dan 87 86 90

I have a chart that that plots 3 lines, one for each student.

However, I want the chart to dynamically update if there's another student. In other words, I would like the chart to add another series while the legend updates to include another student.

I would like to prepare mid-term grades for my history class, and have three categories, which I would like to insert into a spreadsheet to calculate the grades, as follows:

Mid-term 1: 30% Mid-term 2: 40% essays: 30%

each of the three grades is a number from 1-100; the final answer will be a number which I can then convert to a letter grade.

I'm just not sure what function to use, in that last column, to get Excel to calculate the final answer/grade.

Let's just assume that Mid-term 1 is in column A; Mid-term 2 is in column B; and the essay grade is in column C. How can I create a function that will allow me to give the above percentages to the respective assignments, when calculating a grade?

I need to take a specific action when a cell has an actual formula in it versus when it just has a "value". Is there a procedure or command which will allow me to identify if a certain cell has a "formula" (like =sum(a1: a5) ) or just a value.

I am compiling a master spreadsheet to analyse progress of students. I have their potential grades in one column and their latest progress grade in another.

I would like an automatic look up of the potential to the progress grade so that if their current grade is BELOW their potential that gets highlighted one colour, if it is above, another colour.

One issue is that the grades are all letters (S, A, B, C, etc.) and that some potential grades are 'dual' (i.e. A/B, S/A) which complicates the issue somewhat.

my Excel teacher doesn't even know how to do this! The chapter is Working with Multiple Worksheets and Workbooks, and we went into linking workbooks, linking worksheets, using the VLOOKUP function, and saving workbooks as templates. This is Case Problem 2 and i'll attaching the file.

It says:

1. On the Grading Criteria worksheet, enter the text "Exam Average" in cell A1 and the text "Grade" in cell B1.

2. In the range A2:B6, create a lookup table for the range of grades specified by Professor Templeton. (Hint: Each letter grade should be matched up with the lowest score possible for that grade.)

Here are the specified grades: 0 to 49 = F 50 to 59 = D 60 to 74 = C 75 to 89 = B 90 to 100 = A

3. Insert a formula in Column E of each worksheet to calculate the overall score of each student based on the grade table you entered in the Grading Criteria worksheet.

I have a range of cells C11:C29,G12:G18,G20:G23,G25:G26,G28:G29,C33:C42,G33:G42,C46:C47,G46:G47,C51:C54,G51:G59,C58:C59 that contains letter grades (egs. A+,C- etc). I need the code for a macro that checks each cell from this range and if the value of the cell is A+ then the cell's value changes to 100, if the cell's value is A then change the cell's value to 98, if cell's value is B+ then change to 88 ...and so on...you get the idea (i will complete the rest of conditions but i just need the basic code).

I am trying to determine Long Term Gain (LTG,) Long Term Loss (LTL,) Short Term Gain (STG,) Short term Loss (STL,) or No Loss nor Gain (NGL)testing two cells (A1 and B1)and setting a third cell (C1) to the text LTG, LTL, STG, STL, or NGL depending on the results of testing cells A1 and B1.

A1 represent a number of years and B1 represent gains or losses (negative)in dolars.

The way I see the logic is as follows:

If cell A1 or cell B1 are either one of them equal to 0, then it is neither a Gain nor a Loss (NGL.)

If cell A1 is greater than or equal to 1, then it is Long Term; else, if A1 is greater than 0 and less than 1, then it is Short Term.

On the other hand, if cell B1 is greater than 0, then it is a Gain; if B1 is less than 0 (a negative number,) then, it is a Loss.

I need to find (if it is posible in Excel) one formula to test the two cells for posible outcomes:

If A1 = 0 then C1 = NGL If B1 = 0 then C1 = NGL If A1 >= 1 and B1 > 0 the C1 = LTG. If A1 >= 1 and B1 < 0 the C1 = LTL. If A1 < 1 and B1 > 0 then C1 = STG If A1 < 1 and B1 < 0 then C1 = STL

But I'm trying to make the formula a bit more dynamic. Is there anyway to have a set of data in B1:B50 (50 scores will probably be the most) and take the top x scores? X will be set in a separate cell (lets just say A1)?

I have a raw score for each case. I need to map those raw scores to scale scores. For example, a raw score of 0 to 0.49 maps to a scale score of 120, a raw score of 0.5 to 0.99 maps to a scaled score of 110, etc. There are a total of 13 possible scaled scores (120, 110, 100, ... 20, 10, 0). Is there a way to do this in Excel2003? (Note, if anyone on the list is 'bilingual' (Excel and SPSS), I'm looking for the Excel equivalent of the SPSS command RECODE raw (lo thur .49=120), (.5 thru .99=110), etc. INTO scale.

Here in "Grade" Column wants put a formula so that it will show First,Second,third and Fail. If the Mark is more than or equal 40 but less than 50 will reflect Third,if the mark is more than or equals to 50 and less than 60 will reflect Second, if the mark is more than or equals to 60 will reflect First and remaining less than 40 will reflect fail.

This is part of a marks to grade and rating table. I have a list of students and the marks they obtained in an exam. I need a formula to put the grade and rate beside each name e.g. John; 92 marks; A1; 4.

I am trying to find lists of students from this worksheet who obtained the Grades in column K4, K12 and K19 together with their own classes. Is there any formula besides Pivot Tables to find them?

I am looking for a function that would convert any mark into a grade. For example in cell B4 I want to enter the total score, cell c4 the score that a student gets and in cell d4 the grade. It is like a grade calculator. I do not want to limit cell b4 the total score cell with a specific total score number. It can be 100, 50, 30 or 10. The moment I enter any total score and the mark that a student actually scored, the grade is given. I attached an excel sheet.

creating a function to turn a percent (0-100) into a letter grade, I am creating a gradebook spreadsheet.

I think VLOOKUP is the way to go here, but I do not understand vlookup at all no matter how many times I try to look at demos or read how-tos.

I created two columns, one with what the grade entails (93-100 , 90-93 and so on) and the next column has A, A-, etc. But I can't get vlookup to work, any suggestions? I am pretty noob when it comes to excel.

I have a dataset (20,000rows) with Grade, Region and Salary. I need to calculate the 25, 50, 70 and 90 percentiles against each concatenated Grade and Region.

I have a problem with counting the number of students assigned to each professor and determining the number of students who have passing grade. Let say that the passing grade is 80.

About conditional Formatting and relative referencing.

I need to change the colours of the cells depending if the pupil is meeting, over or under acheiving thier target grades.

I've got as far as highlighting the grades and using the formula in conditional formatting =ISTEXT(C7:C14) to display if the pupil is meeting their target grade.

I am aware that i will need to use relative referencing but am unsure how.

Its quite mind boggling to find out a way to see if they are over aceiving/under acheiving.

I am trying to find a function to calculate the percentage grade as the semester progresses. I'm attaching an example of my sheet what I need is column "D" to show the grade percentage from columns "E"-"AK" as each grade is entered.

Newbie here. I have a very frustrating problem. I am using excel for my gradebook at school. I've tried several different ways to assign a letter grade to an number average. It works fine each different way I do it, VLOOKUP, IF, etc. But, I have about 5 grades out of 100 which give the wrong letter grade. For instance, my scale says that a grade of 85 should be lowest limit of a "B", but I get a "C" returned in the cell instead. Like I said, it only happens on a few grades. The biggest majority work fine. I can't figure out why. Any ideas? Attached is one of the "problems" with a student's grades. Note the Final Avg with a grade of "C", it should be "B".

I, too, am trying to use excel to the fullest. My first issue is, I would like to convert the numberic grade in one cell to a letter grade in another cell. I am not really good with all the vocabulary, but would love to learn it, and can copy a formula pretty well!!!! Not so good with functions and macros but would love to learn. All help appreciated.

I'm putting together a mark book for school and have a problem with VLOOKUP distinguishing between what used to be a top grade, ie A, and the new top grade, A*. I want to convert the grade to a number but VLOOKUP can't tell the difference between A and A*. I've attached a sample worksheet.

I have figured out how to assign a letter grade to a number, but am having trouble assigning it the other way, a number to a letter grade. For instance: If a student gets an A, I want the column next to it to indicate that the A represents a 4; a B represents a 3; a C represents a 2; D a 1; and F a 0. This will allow an easy grade point average calculation.

A 4 History C 2 Math A 4 English B 3 Physical Ed D 1 Science

I would like to have a student's current overall grade be automatically calculated and displayed as I enter the test scores and extra credit points over the semester, first in percent and then in letter grade.

I have it set up so that the percent is calculated based on the total number of points likely to be obtainable at the end of the semester. But if they have only taken two tests and one extra credit assignment, it takes the total of those and divides it by the semester's total possible, instead of just the two tests and extra credit total possible. (ps: I do not know how many extra credit columns or number of possible points I will have this early in the semester)

Also, how then do I set up a formula to translate that percentage into a letter grade based on A=90-100, B=80-89, etc.?

Ive been reading up on Arrays and how to use Arrays etc so i believe that it could be done with an array but i could be complete wrong.

what i have is players names in A4 and there averages in H4. i have 22 players listed but i want to take the top 5 scores from h4 and display them in a different section with there as so: NAME(A4): AVERAGE(h4) repeated 5 times and updates Automatically.
