Mid-Term Grades (3-6-2013 Th)

Note from Dr. Phil:

Here we have the breakdown of your current Grade by category. The grades for Exams 1-2 are your curved exams (the corrections to Exam 1 are in; I haven't actually seen Exam 2 yet.). Exam 3 is estimated as the average of Exams 1-2. The Final Exam is twice the average of Exams 1-3. Quiz scores are added up, the three lowest are automatically removed and the remaining total scaled as if all quizzes were taken. Everyone is given an estimated "B" on their Topic 1 paper -- most people do better than that when the papers are graded. Please note that there are some late quizzes which will be graded later, which may result in an unusually low quiz grade.

PLEASE NOTE:

(1) These are estimated grades for your benefit -- they are not part of your transcript. The letter grade will also be available on the Mid-Term Grades via GoWMU.

(2) If you are "flunking" -- with a CD, D or F grade -- that does not mean you are actually failing the course. It just means you need to pull up your grades. There is still time left to get a C or better in PHYS-2050. We obviously have not yet had all the exams, so the Bad Test Day adjustment is not yet in effect. And there may be a course curve to raise grades -- right now there is a small curve to increase the number of As. You can also always stop by Dr. Phil and we can play with the spreadsheet to show you how to improve your grade.

(3) One person missed Quiz 1 and eiither has not filed a Quiz 1A or it's buried on my desk. This person is currently coded as "aaaaa" .

And in case you were wondering, I am an optimist, so I call the grade between an "A" and a "B" as an "AB". The university calls it a "BA". They are the same thing. I just like to call it "better than a B" rather than "worse than an A".

If you don't remember your PID, or aren't sure, send me an email, preferably from your wmich.edu e-mail account, and I can send you your Estimated Grade breakdown information. Or stop by during any of my Office Hours.
