Mid-Term Grades

Note from Dr. Phil:

Here we have the breakdown of your Mid-Term Grade by category. Because so far we've had two exams and some 13 recorded quizzes, all other grades are estimated. Exam 3 is the average of Exams 1 and 2, the Final Exam is twice the estimate of Exam 3. Quiz scores are added up and 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.

(1) The Predictor part of my grading spreadsheet is better with two exam grades -- but still stingy with grades -- especially since most people got zero Star Points on Exam 1. To get some A's I had to curve the course grade for now.

(2) Likewise, having one or more missing quizzes will greatly affect your estimated Quiz grade.

(3) Mid-Term Grades are for you benefit -- they are not part of your transcript.

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 Mid-Term Grade breakdown information. Or stop by during any of my Office Hours.
