(12/21/16) The average on the Final was an
incredible score of 79%, with a high of 200 and a low of
45. I'm pretty certain this is the highest average I
have ever seen on a Chem 201 Final exam....or maybe any
Chem 201 exam!! So GREAT JOB!
I know a lot of you are anxious to find out your final
grade in the course, but I am afraid you will have to be
patient as it takes some time to double check everything
and also compare the grading of different TA's to see if
an adjustment needs to be made. This adjustment
would only increase your point total - it won't decrease
it. Because of the time to do the above and the
holidays, it is highly unlikely that the final grades will
be posted until the end of next week.
At this point, all the scores for everything including
the extra credits should be in Blackboard. If you
think there is an error with one of your grades in BB,
please email me and let me know. If you are on a
borderline, you can email me too, but be aware I won't
respond to these inquiries until after the TA adjustment
is made and I check the final point distribution, which
won't happen until next week.
In the meantime, Enjoy the Break and Have a Wonderful
(12/19/16) I just posted blank form A's of the exams from this semester on the download page.
(12/15/16) For those of you concerned about the dropped quiz store affecting your grade, here is what is going on. We drop the lowest quiz score by entering the negative of your lowest quiz score in the "dropped quiz" column in the Blackboard gradebook. This gives you the correct total for points so far. Unfortunately, while Blackboard can do this calculation correctly, it does not calculate the correct total points for the course. With everything except the final complete, the total should be 800, but Blackboard thinks it is 820. Don't worry because your actual grade will be calculated in Excel and Excel can do the math correctly. After the final exam, the correct total possible points will be 1000. So, for example, if you have a point total of 824 at the end, that would correspond to 82.4% and you would get a B in the course.
