Developing Grades


Your grade in this course is developed as follows:

Without plus/minus grades: students getting the following grade ranges are guaranteed the grades shown. In some special cases, a student below a grade threshold may be given a higher grade.

Graduate students:

Undergraduate students:

With plus/minus grades: Before the first examination taken in the course, students may opt to be graded on the plus/minus basis. After the first examination taken, students may not change how they are graded in the course.

Graduate students:

Undergraduate students:

 
  • Pass/Fail grades: A student must earn a "C" grade to get a "P"
     
  • Any request for exam grade changes must occur within one week after the exams are returned. Otherwise, your exam will not be considered for regrading.
     
  • Test Grade Outlier: Occasionally, a student may have a test grade that appears to be an anomaly or outlier. This would be an examination 1 or 2 examination grade that is at least 20% lower than the other examination 1 or 2 grade as well as the examination 3 grade. If a student has an examination grade for either examination 1 or 2 and the grades for both of the two other examinations are at least 20% higher, the instructor, may, at his discretion, assign a course grade higher than the student would otherwise receive.
