Calculating GPAs

Hello, 

 

The GPA calculations for our students seem to work for some, but not all when doing the calculations on transcripts. I can't seem to find where I go to look at how GPAs are being calculated, and what I might need to do to make sure what is showing up is the same for all locations. 

 

Thanks, 

 

Brian

GPA Method setup is under District Office > Start Page > District > GPA Calculations.

 

Just noticed you posted this in PS learning, these steps are for PS SIS.

Thank you - I don't have access to the PS SIS forum, so I wasn't able to post it there. 

 

Is there a place to look to see what the formula options are and how to ensure that those are doing what you want it to?

PowerSchool comes with a few GPA calculations. You also have the option of creating your own. You may want to check out the PowerSchool articles that reference GPA calculations. Below are links to a few different articles.
