View Full Version : Question about a website calculator

12-23-2011, 11:05 PM
This website calculates r-score (it's a type of formula that is used with number in Quebec Cegep's): http://rscore.x10.mx/

Anyhow, I looked at the source and saw that he identified each text box a variable and submit puts it all together to give r-score. But where is the formula used to calculate the r-score listed in the source?

Like when I look through the source I see it takes the "High school average" variable, the "class average" variable, etc. and then when I click submit, it gives me a number, but what is it doing with all these variables to get these numbers? Has he hidden the calculation formula or am I blind?

The calaculations formulae are contained in an external Javascript file js.js.

You can find the formula at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/R_score
