Pre-Final Exam Grades

Note from Dr. Phil:

Here we have the breakdown of your Grade by category after Exam 3 and before the Final. Because so far we've had three exams and some 17 recorded quizzes, all other grades are estimated. The Final Exam is twice the average of Exams 1-3. 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 three exam grades -- but still stingy with A's. I currently still have a course curve in place. If you've missed an Exam and have not made it up, this will be reflected in the estimates. And, of course, we can't implement the Bad Test Day Rule until you've taken the Final Exam.

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

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

(4) For your comparison, I've include your estimated Mid-Term grades in the last two columns.

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 Pre-Final Grade breakdown information. Or stop by during any of my Office Hours.
