Percentage Deduction from 100%

This Grading type will deduct the weights on the scores from 100, this means it is possible to be given a negative percentage.

E.g If I have a scoring scheme which has Yes/No and No has a weight of 10 and I have 15 requirements the lowest possible score I could be given is –50%.

This is because No has a weight of 10 which will turn to -10 once this Grading is selected and 15(Number of requirements) x 10(Highest Weight) is 150 then 100(Starting percentage) – 150 is -50.


This type of grading would require a new scoring scheme typically as the weights are now negatives whereas before they would have been positive.
