Late Mid-Term Grades (11-6-2015 Fr)

Note from Dr. Phil:

Here we have the breakdown of your current Grade by category. The grade for Exams 1 and 2 are your curved exams. Exam 3 is estimated as the average of Exams 1-2. Exam 3 is estimated as the average of Exams 1-2. The Final Exam is twice the average of Exams 1-3. Star Points are scaled as if all the exams have been taken. 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. 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. This letter grade is actually more up-to-date than the one 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-2070. 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.

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.

Mid-Term Grades (10-11-2015 Su)

Note from Dr. Phil:

Here we have the breakdown of your current Grade by category. The grade for Exam 1 is your curved exams. Exam 2 is the same as Exam 1. And Exam 3 is estimated as the average of Exams 1-2. The Final Exam is twice the average of Exams 1-3. Star Points are scaled as if all the exams have been taken. 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. 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-2070. 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.

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.
