In each parameter, there are five possible letter grades given, each carrying certain points: A (50 points), B (40 points), C (30 points), D (20 points), and F (0 points). The overall score for a college is the weighted sum of the points scored in the four parameters. The weights of the parameters are 0.1, 0.2, 0.3 and 0.4 in some order, but the order is not disclosed Accreditation is awarded based on the following scheme: Range Accreditation Overall score > 45 35 < Overall Score<45 BAA 25 c Overall Score < 35 15c= Overall Score < 25 BBB Overall Score < 15 BBA Junk
