Grade Calculator - Plant Biology

Exam I
(Exam Proper + Bonus)

Use this calculator to predict your final grade. Begin the semester by entering 105 for each of the five exams and a 0 for the number of absences. Update your prediction after each exam.

     This calculator uses the same algorithm that I use in my spreadsheet for grade assignments. A student may complete plant biology with an average greater than 100 (because of bonus questions on exams and bonus points for attendance). In addition, the algorithm is set for slightly lower standards than advertised for each grade, giving each student an edge against borderline grades.

     After a grade is assigned, it will not be changed at the request of a student (except, of course, in case of an error). It would be unethical to alter the grading policy or course requirements for one student. Please do not ask.
