In Elevate K-12 Analytics Admin Settings, the Letter Grade Ranking Scale setting allows you to specify a numeric value for each letter grade used in your Student Information System (SIS). Generally, grade scales that use A-F letter grades are ranked on a scale from zero to five (0-5), where zero is low and five is high. Supplemental letter grades (e.g. P, NP, W, etc.) are assigned a rank within the same zero to five scale.
Letter grade rankings must be set for each school category in your institution. This allows you to manage grade proficiency rank and grade passing rank scores to accurately reflect grade proficiency and passing ranks from one school category to the next.
