Rank in Class

Rankinclass considers the track level of each course. In the track system all subjects are divided into tracks or levels, which place different interpretations on the grade received for a given course. It is an attempt to show greater justice to students who select difficult subjects and also, an attempt to encourage other students to earn a higher grade.
 
Tracking enables classes to be taught on the basis of difficulty of subject matter and the ability of the students taking the subject. The grade is meant to indicate whether or not a student is working to his or her level and it is independent of the track; thus students in Academic can make the Honor Roll just as easily as students in Honors.
 
Rankinclass, however, is determined by an Adjusted Quality Point average, which gives greater weight to the more difficult courses in the advanced tracks. The student who ranks first in the class has the highest Adjusted Quality Point Average. The weighting is accomplished by assigning quality points to each mark according to the track of the course, as detailed in the accompanying Quality Points Table. The Quality Points Table is used to calculate quality points and rank. Current and cumulative rank in class appears only on the semester report card.
