Hot Potatoes Scoring

The makers of Hot Potatoes are fabulous people.  They have made an excellent program to create online quizzes, tests, puzzles and more.  What is even better - It is free to all educators!

Problem - The folks at Hot Potatoes don't want children to know when they are failing.  Their formula for calculating grades allows students to miss half the problems but still make C's!!

Solution - Each time they have updated Hot Potatoes, I have had to work countless hours to figure out how their grading system works.  Since I have no real training in Java script, I am forced to do it the hard way - trial and error.
