says:

There are so many variables here I cannot provide a direct answer. It sounds as if you got
somewhere between 75-80% correct so depending on the grading scale in your school it
could be a D, or a C or a B. What it should depend on is the difficulty of the concepts and
skills and the difficulty of the assessment; if all were easy it probably should be a D, if
difficult it could be an A. Performance standards are/should be seen as variable, not fixed.
