(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
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.
