HOW GRADES ARE COMPUTED
The semester grade determines if a cadet passes or fails a course. The first-semester grade combines the first quarter, second quarter, and final exam grades. Likewise, the second-semester grade combines third quarter, fourth quarter, and final exam grades. The total number of points in each semester is divided by the total number of weights to arrive at the semester's final grade.
Weight might be considered the proportion that the teacher determines the assignment should have concerning other assignments. Credit for a class will be granted only once. However, all grades will be posted on the transcript even if the failed grades are made up. Cadets making up a class will not receive more than five credits for that class. In other words, courses taken over for an improved grade will not accept duplicate credits.
