Grading Scale Update – Checking the Grading Scale in Sakai

As part of the annual end of the year meetings last year – the university adopted a formalized grading scale.  As stated in the current catalog (page 294) “All Johnson professors use this scale unless the unique demands of their subject matter require a different approach. In such cases, the alternative grade scale appears in the course syllabus“. The grading scale is:


To modify the grade scale in a course (Sakai does not use the new scale as the default when creating new courses):

  1. Go to Gradebook>Course Grade Options and modify the minimum % column to the following:
    A+ = 101
    A = 97
    A- = 94
    B+ = 91
    B = 87
    B- = 84
    C+ = 81
    C = 77
    C- = 74
    D+ = 71
    D = 68
    D- = 65
    F = 0
  2. The scale above does NOT make adjustment for rounding up.  If so, adjust the minimum % by .5 accordingly.
  3. Once done, be sure to click the SAVE button to apply the scale changes to the course’s grade book (and student grades).
