## Fall 2011 Current Grades

### Explanation of statistics:

**Mean**: the average

**Median**: the "middle" score (for our class of 18,
9 are at or above the
median score and 9 are at or below the median score.)

**Mode**: the most common score

Grades will most likely (but not always) be computed on the following scale:

- 93+ = A
- 90 - 92.99 = A-
- 87 - 89.99 = B+
- 83 - 86.99 = B
- 80 - 82.99 = B-
- 77 - 79.99 = C+
- 73 - 76.99 = C
- 70 - 72.99 = C-
- 60 - 69.99 = D
- -59.99 = F

**How to use the WEIGHTED GRADE column:**
This column can tell you the maximum possible
score that you can still get in the course.
If the **total % currently in** is, say, 30%,
and your weighted grade is 18%, then that means you
are 12% (30-18) short of the maximum. So your
maximum possible score for the entire course is
100-12 = 88% = B+. This assumes you don't lose
any more points for the rest of the term (which
is unrealistic for any human). So just treat it
as a way to figure out what is still *mathematically*
possible.
