The final grade for the course will be based on the exam scores, the quiz scores, average of the scores earned in the home work assignments, and the score received for your attitude. The lowest homework assignment score and the lowest quiz score will be dropped. The scores on the remaining homework assignments will then be combined and the result converted to the 100-point scale by dividing the result by the maximum number of points possible and multiplying by 100. The same is done for the quiz scores. This will yield the average homework score and the average quiz score on that scale. Each exam contributes 24%, homework contributes 10%, attitude, class participation, and attendance contributes 8%, and quizzes contribute 10%. The overall average score (X) for the course is determined as follows:
X =0.24x(exam1 score + exam 2 score + exam 3 score) + 0.1x(homework average) +0.08x(attitude/participation/attendance score) + 0.1x(average quiz score)
The final letter grade for the course is based on the value of X and is determined from to the following grade levels:
Value of X (in %) 90-100 80-89 70-79 60-69 <60
Letter Grade A B C D F
