# FCQ scale conversions

### From pre-fall-2006 scale to fall '06 and later scale

 Old (pre fall 06) New (fall 06 and later) Old converted to new Label A to F 1 to 6 1 to 6 Min grade F na na Min points 0 1 1 Max grade A na na Max points 4 6 6 Range 4 5 5

For any average or individual response from the old form,
old converted to new = (1.25 * old score) + 1

 Convert your old (pre-fall 2006) FCQ score Enter your old (pre-fall 2006) score here (a number between 0 and 4) Your old score converted to the new (fall 2006 and later) scale is:

Old converted to new scale =
( [old score] * ([new range ] / [old range]) ) + [difference in starting points]
= ([old score] * 5 / 4 ) + 1
= ([old score] * 1.25 ) + 1

 For individual responses Old Old # * 5/4 plus 1 = Old converted to new F 0 0.00 1.00 1.00 D 1 1.25 1.00 2.25 C 2 2.50 1.00 3.50 B 3 3.75 1.00 4.75 A 4 5.00 1.00 6.00 For averages -- examples Old # * 5/4 plus 1 = Old converted to new 1.20 1.50 1.00 2.50 2.00 2.50 1.00 3.50 2.50 3.13 1.00 4.13 3.10 3.88 1.00 4.88 3.40 4.25 1.00 5.25 3.70 4.63 1.00 5.63 4.00 5.00 1.00 6.00

We don't recommend converting new scores to the old scale, but if you want to do this try:
New converted to old = (New - 1) / 1.25
