A professor wants to know if they can set up a Settings/Grading scheme that uses a GPA scale like this,

 

A = 4
A- = 3.75
B+ = 3.25
B = 3
B- = 2.75
C+ = 2.25
C = 2
C- = 1.75
D+ = 1.25
D 1
D- = 0.75
F = 0

 

What are the caveats for going this way? Also, the course also uses weighted groups like,

 

Writing = 70%

Participation = 15%

Critiques = 15%

Total = 100%

 

Their solution was to multiply the GPA scorings by 4 ....

 

QUESTION: Can (1) someone please help me formulate a strategy for doing this better by sticking with this method above (2) or reasons why I should suggest a better way?
