1. Convert all entered marks to level using the SIMPLE Level Code table:

2. Use the weights to establish the number of values in each category (LEVEL BIN).

Level 4

Level 3

Level 2

Level 1

n = 1+2 = 3

n=1+1=2

n=0

n=1

 

3. Based on the weights, Level 4 occurred 3 times, which is the most consistent level for a category. Level 4 was the largest Level Bin(s) (LLB)

 

LLB = Level 4 (most consistent level for a category)

 

 

 

4. Convert all marks from the most consistent level (LLB) to a percent based on your specific Ontario Levels code table. Here is an example:
