# Entering A Formula To Determine A Grade

Apr 6, 2007

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?

## Determine Grade From Test Scores

Jan 9, 2008

I have got students mark list in Excel. I want the grading as under in the last column.

73% and above = A+
63% to 72% = A
53% to 62% = B
44% to 52% = C
35% to 43% = D
30% to 34% = E
<30% = F

Is it possible with VBA?

Jul 10, 2013

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.

Jun 13, 2006

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.)

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).

## Formula For Segregation Of Various Grade?

Feb 20, 2013

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.

## Formula To Put The Grade And Rate Beside Each Name

## Formula To Show Current Grade Of Student

Jan 14, 2007

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.?

## Formula That Reads Grade And Then Ranks These By 1st-5th Place According To Score

I currently have a countif formula which reads the grade, but I think I need to link that with an index formula which I'm having problems with.

## Making A Grade Book--- Missing Assignments Formula

Nov 14, 2008

I have a decent working knowledge of excel, but I'm stuck... I teach and I have created an excel spread sheet to help me keep track of grades, attendance, etc.
I'm trying to figure out how to get excel to figure out the assignments a student has missing (cells with no data input), then take the assignment name (column title with missing data) and students name (first column of data) and put that information in another worksheet. Basically I would like excel to tell me what students are missing work and what assignments they are missing so I don't have to scroll through hundreds of lines of data whenever I have midterms or a student wants a list of "missing assignments". BTW---I can get it to list the number of assignments a student has missing, but not list the specific assignment titles.

I know theoretically this is possible, but I'm having trouble figuring out how to do it. Any help would be appreciated as it will save a lot of time and help out my students! If you can give me a "fake" formula, I should be able to update it for my purposes...

## Formula Show The Grade Average As The Year Progresses

## Error When Entering Formula Using VBA?

May 29, 2014

I have a formula that I'm using which works and gives me the right value.

Code:
=COUNTIF(bommech[PO1 No],"")+COUNTIF(bomelec[Procurement Status],G4)

However when I try and enter the exact same formula through VBA using, I get "Run-time error 1004: Application defined or object defined error". I don't see why the formula will work when I enter it directly into Excel but it won't enter the formula through VBA.

Code:
ActiveSheet.Range("H4").formula = "=COUNTIF(bommech[PO1 No],"")+COUNTIF(bomelec[Procurement Status],G4)"

## Entering A Formula As An Array In VBA

Oct 20, 2008

My VBA sub contains
DIM sFormula As String
DIM rCell as Range

at some point in the code, the value of sFormula is set to something like
=ROUND(SUM(\$A\$5:\$A\$10*\$B\$5:\$B\$10),2)
(not really this formula but of that flavour)
later in the code I have an instruction
rCell.FormulaArray = sFormula
(rCell is set to a single cell at the time)

When I run the code and then examine the cell, I find that the cell's formula has been correctly set to
=ROUND(SUM(\$A\$5:\$A\$10*\$B\$5:\$B\$10),2)
however there are no {curly brackets} surrounding the formula to suggest that it has been entered as an array.

## Formula That Will Get Word To Appear After Entering All Information?

But what I need is a formula that will put it into single line and insert an 'and' ALWAYS between the last two people. So it should show like (Joe Bloggs, Peter Smith and Matt Jones) but if I remove Matt Jones it should now display as (Joe Bloggs and Peter Smith).

## Prevent Someone From Entering A Formula In A Cell

May 18, 2007

I'm creating a maths workbook in Excel. I want the user to workout the answer in his/her head and enter the answer into Excel.

## Formula Is Entering A Default Time When It Comes Across An Empty Cell

Nov 9, 2005

I'm using a formula to copy a time from one cell to another
across sheets. The format of the time is h:mm AM/PM.

However, when the formula references an empty cell, it puts in a
default value of 12:00 AM and I need it to remain blank, (just as
the referenced cell)
It's such a simple copy formula. ie:

=sheet1!A1
