Hi

I'm tackling down an extra credit assignment which I'm so confused on.
We are to design a basic JS Grade Calc where we input our scores and it gives us our grade.

For extra credit we have to snazz it up a bit.

So far this is what I want it to look like:
[IMG]http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v30/chibidemonkitty/gradecalc.jpg[/IMG]

I would like for it to add up all the CP scores and give the amount for that, then do the same for the lab scores, and then the tests/final exam.

In the box below the Calculate Grade, I would like it to give this kind of answer:

...adding up all your scores.
...calculating your grades.

Here are your scores thank you for waiting:

CP: <score>
Labs: <score>
Exams: <score>
Total Score: <score>
Your letter grade is: <grade>

Congratulations!~ CIS 101 is now over. :)


Any and all help creating the formula part of this would be great!

This is my script:

<center><h1><i> Grade Calculator </i></h1></center>
<!-- Start script -->
<script type="text/javascript">
function gradeCalc()

  // Output Variable
  var gradeOut;
  
  // Input Variables
  var gradeCP = document.gradeform.cp.value;
  var gradeCP2 = document.gradeform.cp2.value;
  var gradeCP3 = document.gradeform.cp3.value;
  var gradeCP4 = document.gradeform.cp4.value;
  var gradeCP5 = document.gradeform.cp5.value;
  var gradeCP6 = document.gradeform.cp6.value;
  var gradeCP7 = document.gradeform.cp7.value;
  var gradeLabs = document.gradeform.labs.value;
  var gradeLabs2 = document.gradeform.labs2.value;
  var gradeLabs3 = document.gradeform.labs3.value;
  var gradeLabs4 = document.gradeform.labs4.value;
  var gradeLabs5 = document.gradeform.labs5.value;
  var gradeLabs6 = document.gradeform.labs6.value;
  var gradeTests = document.gradeform.tests.value;
  var gradeTests2 = document.gradeform.tests2.value;
  var gradeFinal = document.gradeform.final.value;
  var gradeEC = document.gradeform.ec.value;
  
  // Inputed Variables to the output variable
  gradeOut = "...adding up your scores.\n\n";
  gradeOut = "...calculating your grades. \n\n";
  gradeOut = "Here are your scores, thank you for waiting: \n\n";
  gradeOut+= "CP: " "\n";
  gradeOut+= "Lab: " "\n";
  gradeOut+= "Exams: " "\n";
  gradeOut+= "Extra Credit: " "\n\n";
  gradeOut = "Congratulations!~ CIS 101 is now over :) \n\n";
  
  // Formula
  var totalGrade = (  );
  
  // Grade Variable
  gradeOut+= "Your grade is: " + totalGrade + "\n";
  
  // Grade letter to Output Variable
  if (totalGrade >= 90)
    gradeOut+= "Your letter grade is: A";
  else if (totalGrade < 90 && totalGrade >= 80)
    gradeOut+= "Your letter grade is: B";
  else if (totalGrade < 80 && totalGrade >= 70)
    gradeOut+= "Your letter grade is: C";
  else if (totalGrade < 70 && totalGrade >= 60)
    gradeOut+= "Your letter grade is: D";
  else if (totalGrade < 60)
    gradeOut+= "Your letter grade is: F";
	
	// Results in the text area
  document.gradeform.gradeout.value = gradeOut;

The problems I'm having are here:

// Inputed Variables to the output variable
  gradeOut = "...adding up your scores.\n\n";
  gradeOut = "...calculating your grades. \n\n";<br><br>
  gradeOut = "Here are your scores, thank you for waiting: \n\n";<br>,<br>
  gradeOut+= "CP: " "\n";
  gradeOut+= "Lab: " "\n";
  gradeOut+= "Exams: " "\n";
  gradeOut+= "Extra Credit: " "\n";
  gradeOut = "Congratulations!~ CIS 101 is now over :) \n\n";
  
  // Formula
  var totalGrade = (  );

The formula itself so it outputs the correct answer.
And of course, how to get it to add up all the cps and give me a number, and the same for the rest.

Your HTML document is not valid; it lacks a DOCTYPE. Also your question isn't very clear here. What kind of an help do you need since except for a few problems it pretty much looks OK. As for the formula, you would be the best person to come up with it. Here is a cleaner valid version of the same code. Just plug-in your formula calculation part and it should go well.

Now the part I don't understand from the calculator we are supposed to go off of is this:

// Add the inputed Grades to the output variable
  gradeOut = "Your Calculated Grades:\n\n";
  gradeOut+= "Homework Grade: " + gradeHomework + "\n";
  gradeOut+= "Lab Grade: " + gradeLabs + "\n";
  gradeOut+= "Midterm Grade: " + gradeMidterm + "\n";
  gradeOut+= "Final Grade: " + gradeFinal + "\n\n";

  // Calculate the course grade via the formula
  var totalGrade = ( (gradeHomework*.25) + (gradeLabs*.20) + (gradeMidterm*.25) + (gradeFinal*.30) );

  //Add the course grade to the variable
  gradeOut+= "Your course grade is: " + totalGrade + "\n";

  // Check for what grade letter and add to output variable (extra credit)
  if (totalGrade >= 90)
    gradeOut+= "Your letter grade is: A";
  else if (totalGrade < 90 && totalGrade >= 80)
    gradeOut+= "Your letter grade is: B";
  else if (totalGrade < 80 && totalGrade >= 70)
    gradeOut+= "Your letter grade is: C";
  else if (totalGrade < 70 && totalGrade >= 60)
    gradeOut+= "Your letter grade is: D";
  else if (totalGrade < 60)
    gradeOut+= "Your letter grade is: F";

In the part that says: "// Add the inputed Grades to the output variable" I need it to add up all my CPs and give me a total for that, as well as the labs, and the exams.

So in essence I need it to look like this:
CP: <all cp scores added up>
Labs: <all lab scores added up>
Exams: <all exam scores added up>
Total Score: <score>
Your letter grade is: <grade>

Which is different from that grade calc we have to work off of because it just outputs whatever you wrote in the box field.
Like so:

Could someone please help me? I hope I explained myself well enough now...if not...I'll try explaining more.
