Task: Hypothetical grades

Enter your own data similar to what you see below for grades into

a workbook on sheet 1.

Label the sheet as "Hypothetical Grades". This sheet will contain the grades for a hypothetical class - make up your class list of 5 students in total and grades out of 100. The marks in the table below is raw and unconverted data out of 100 for each of the five assessment items

(Exam 1, Exam 2, Exam 3, Paper and Participation).

NAME Exam 1 Exam 2 Exam 3 Paper Participation

Iaonimaata 70 80 90 80 90

Kantera 80 90 70 60 50

Katinimoone 30 40 20 10 50

Perform the following tasks using this file.

1. Add the following two students to your personal grade sheet:

NAME Exam 1 Exam 2 Exam 3 Paper Participation

Christopher, Adams 82 75 81 87 94

Ruth, Isabela 65 79 84 92 65

2. The three exams should each count to 25% each, the paper should count to 15%, and participation should count for the remaining 10%. With this information, calculate the final mark (out of 100%) for each student in a new column. Hint: Simply create a new table showing converted marks, followed by converted total. Use new columns for this.

3. Calculate the converted and unconverted class average for each assessment item.

Hint: Place this at the bottom of both the converted and unconverted tables.

4. Create a chart that shows the grade distribution for the final grade. (A+=85-100, A=78-84; B+=71-77; B=64-70; C+=57-63; C=50-56; D=40-49; E= <40)

Hint: Create a new column for grades in the converted table, insert a lookup formula to calculate all the grades - you will need a table array of grades for this. Additionally, for the chart you will need to create another table showing the grade distribution i.e. table showing count of students who got an A+, A, B+ etc... use this table for the chart.

5. Sort the table names alphabetically and save the Excel file with a filename as follows: Sxxxxxxxx-A2. (where x's is your ID).
