Overall grade and curving. The display shows your current grade in this class, with curving taken into account. The curve used is an overall curve with cutoffs of 85/72/56/40 percent for A/B/C/D, instead of the standard 90/80/70/60 percent scale. If the semester were to end here, this is the curve that would determine your grade. After the final exam scores are in, I will re-evaluate the curve, and may make small adjustments, depending on the overall score distribution after the test. (Note that the curving is performed on the overall average; no additional curving is done on the individual hw/quiz/exam scores.)
Interpretation of score display. This page provides a detailed explanation of the notations in the display. Check this page before asking questions about the display.
Discrepancies in score display:
If you notice any errors in the
score display, such as an incorrectly entered or missing quiz or hw
score, let me know right away and show me the assignment in question.
Deadlines for grading appeals: Grading appeals on Exam 2 must be made by Wednesday, April 30, the last day of instruction. (The deadlines for grading appeals on earlier tests, hw assignments, and quizzes, have long expired.)
