Honor Roll

The honor roll will be calculated at the conclusion of each marking period for grades 9 - 12. All courses in which students earn credit and receive a numerical grade will be used in determining honor roll. The honor roll is based on the average a student achieves each marking period. The following averages will be used to calculate honor roll:

  • First Honors - an average of 93% or greater
  • Second Honors - an average of 83% or greater

The exact numerical average a student receives for each class in a marking period will be used to determine honor roll. Students who earn any grade below a B (83%) are not eligible for honor roll designation for that marking period.

Calculation of Grade Point Average (GPA)

Westfield Technical Academy’s grade point average is based on a 100-point scale. Cumulative GPAs are calculated on final grades at the end of Semester I and II. The weight of a course is determined in the following manner:

Weight 1 (Honors) 1.05  
Weight 2 (Standard)  1.00
Weight 3 (Remedial) 0.95

Formula:

GPA = sum of (grade x weight x credit) / sum of credits.

Example:

90 (weight 1 course) 1.0 credit 90 x 1.05 x 1.0 = 94.500
80 (weight 2 course) 1.0 credit 80 x 1.00 x 1.0 = 80.000
85 (weight 3 course) 0.5 credit 85 x 0.95 x 0.5 = 40.375
75 (weight 1 course) 1.0 credit 75 x 1.05 x 1.0 = 78.750
 
GPA = 293.625 / 3.5 = 83.892
