Course marks are current marks that represent only the 70% part of your overall mark.
Understanding Mark Calculations
During the semester, students MarkBook grades will be posted online. Make sure you understand that for example, if your posted mark is 90% for a semester grade, at the end of the course you will need to multiply your mark by .7 (70%) to know your completed semester mark. Here's the example:
90 x .7 = 63%, therefore, at the end of the course your mark is really 63%.
The final course mark is derived by adding together your final practical summative and final written exam marks.
For example, a grade 11 computer engineering student that has a final 90% semester mark, a 95% final practical summative mark worth 15% of overall course mark and 87% on the final written exam worth 15% of the overall course mark will end up with a final course mark of:
90% x .7 = 63%
95% x .15 = 14.25%
87% x .15 = 13.05%
Total course mark = 63% + 14.25% + 13.05% = 90.3%
According to the Halton Board of Education protocol for posting grades, final course marks are not allowed to be posted.
