which if statement? I'm assuming the one at line 69.

What is the value of input?

do alert(input); between lines 69 and 68

What do you mean by: form.elements.value = input; (me confused!?!) or, which element exactly?

And you won't need this: "grade = Math.round((grade * 0.2));" unless you are interested to return F on all inputs from 100 down to 0, (at least not with the route taken).

Anyway, you can try this :
(it should work if I understood the task correctly; and for a better user experience you might want to split your function in two )

function calcGrade() {
                var form = document.getElementById("form");
                var finalGrade = document.getElementById("final-grade");
                var field = form.elements['test1'];     
		var input = field.value, grade, max = 100, min = 0;

		if(input = parseInt(input, 10)){
			field.value = 
			grade = input > max ? grade = max : 
				input < min ? grade = min : 
				input;
			finalGrade.value =
				(grade < 60) ? "F" :
				(grade < 70) ? "D" :
				(grade < 80) ? "C" :
				(grade < 90) ? "B" :
				(grade <100) ? "A" : "!";
	            }
	    }
