Class rank is determined by total quality points earned. Courses are weighted based on degree of difficulty (e.g., “A” in an Advanced Placement course earns five (5) quality points. See “Weighted Grades” above). Quality points are determined by multiplying the final weighted grade earned in the course by credit value of that course. Class rank is determined by summing the total quality points earned for each course. Check the Curriculum Guide for class rank calculation timelines.
