Yield and Quality Grading:
On the Yield Grade Section of the Scantron:
There is a spot to mark "Whole Grades" and "Tenths of Grades".
How to fill it out: Examples -
If the Yield Grade is 1.19, round it to 1.2 and mark 1 in the Whole Grades and 2 in the Tenths of Grades.
If the Yield Grade is 2.22, round it down to 2.2 and mark 2 in the Whole Grades and 2 in the Tenths of Grades.
Basically, round to the Tenths!
