I'm assigning weights to different course assessments.

Assessment Weight ============================ ====== Assignments (best 5 of 8) 50% Mid-term exam 20% Final exam 30% 

Is there a word or phrase for a grading scheme that counts the best m of n marks? Example: There are weekly assignments worth 10% each, the best 5 of 8 will be counted.

Only half serious, but you could try this:

The last 5 order statistics of the 8 assignments have a weight of 10% each.
