Calculation 2: Sum of All Positive Scores Plus 1/2 Neutral Scores
Find the sum of all positive Prince Scores plus 1/2 the sum of all Prince Scores that are enclosed in parentheses (the neutral scores). In this case, the sum of all positive Prince Scores is 36 (Administration is +18, Faculty Senate is +12 and the Budget Committee is +6). The neutral score is 4 for the board of Trustees. Add 1/2 of 4, or 2, to the 36 for a total of 38 for this calculation. If the neutral score is an odd number, round up.
