HOW DID YOU CONVERT THE 70-POINT KILLER ANGELS EXAM TO A 50-POINT SCORE?
Through the magic of math! I took your score out of 70 points, determined the percentage you scored correct, and converted that percentage to the same percentage of fifty points. For example, say you scored 51/70 on the original test. That is 72.85%. 72.85% of 50 is 36.425. Because I am kind and benevolent (and not a math teacher!) I called that 37 points and recorded a 37/50 on the Gradebook program. To save you the trouble, here is the math as my calculator and I figured it. Check your scores to ensure I recorded them correctly!
