Would weighting your AP or ACL classes give you a higher average on a report card?
This is a great year because I will beat Owen and Saad in Egg-O-Naut and the New York Jets are a playoff team this year because Brett Farve is the Best Quarterback on the Earth. 7-3. Better and better every week. The Yankees are getting C.C. Sabbathia.

even though im graduating so it doesnt effect me. i still think ACL classes need to be weighted. They demand more work and give more homework. Kids try harder in them, they should be rewarded for doing so :geek:

Yes, that's the point. Try to compensate for the harder coursework.

Although I still am not sure what ACL is...

not at my school. report cards and honor roll are both unweighed. The only thing we weigh our grades for is the GPA for class rankings. i wish they weighed Honors and AP courses for report cards. grades closed for me on monday and i'm not too happy with some of the grades i got.

at my school they have a Pass/Fail option for classes that you don't need the credits to graduate, where we can take a course P/F and it doesn't effect our GPA, and it goes on our transcripts, but we don't get high school credit for it

No, but it does raise your GPA (assuming a 100 point scale), and (perhaps) on your college transcript.

Not on your report card. On your card is the regual non-weighted score. You have to multiple your score by how much the weight is to get ure weighted score. It does affect your class rank and honor roll.
