Adjusting Test Scores Proportionately in Excel

There are a few different ways to adjust test scores proportionately in Excel. One way is to use the PROPER function. This function will take a text string and change it to proper case, which is the first letter of each word in uppercase and the rest of the letters in lowercase. So, if you have a list of names in all uppercase or all lowercase, you can use the PROPER function to fix them. For example, if your list looks like this:


You can use the following formula to change them to proper case:


Which would give you this result:

You can also use the TEXTJOIN function to concatenate cells, which is useful for combining text from multiple cells into one cell. For example, if you have a first name in one cell and a last name in another cell, you can use TEXTJOIN to put them together in one cell. The syntax for TEXTJOIN is:

=TEXTJOIN(delimiter, ignore_empty, text1, [text2], ...)

Where delimiter is the character that will go between the text strings being joined, ignore_empty is a boolean value that specifies whether empty cells should be ignored or not, and [text2], ...] are the cells or ranges of cells that you want to join together. So, using our previous example, if your first names are in column A and your last names are in column B, you could use this formula to put them together in column C:


(The TRUE value for ignore_empty tells TEXTJOIN to ignore any empty cells in columns A and B.)
