Determining Grade Level for Transfer Students

a. Determining grade level for transfer students who have had at least one year of high school 
Take the academic record of each school year, dividing the number of credits earned at the school of that particular year by the number of credits possible to have been earned that particular year at that school and then taking that fractional value times the number of credits possible at South Oldham High School.

E/P = X/7
E= # earned credits transferred 
P= # credits possible to have been earned
X= variable to be solved
7 = number of credits currently possible in one year at SOHS

Do this calculation for each year and then add together the results from all calculations.

If the student has had at least one year of HS and  X ≥ 5, then transfer as sophomore
If the student has had at least two years of HS and  X ≥ 11, then transfer as junior
If the student has had at least three years of HS and X ≥ 17, then transfer as senior

b. Rationale

Doing this calculation for each year and then adding together the results yields an “apples to apples” comparison in terms of credits needed by a student to be on schedule for graduation.
