What do the numbers on the top of my quiz mean? What is my grade for the quiz, and what is my class grade? (Asked by Kimo)

Answers

What do the numbers on the top of my exam mean? What is my grade for the quiz, and what is my class grade?

Kimo, the fraction written in the upper right corner is the number of points you answered correctly on this exam (the 15 multiple choice/fill-in-the-blank/short answerquestions + the written question).

The points written near the top center of the quiz are the points you earned on the quiz. The quiz is worth 5.5 points out of the 100 points for the semester. The points are calculated by multiplying the fraction of the correctly answered points (in the upper right) by 5.5 points (quiz points); i.e., if you ace the quiz, you earn 5.5 points; if you answer half of the quiz correctly, you earn 2.25 points.

The fraction in the upper left corner is the total number of points you earned during the semester divided by the total number of possible points. In general, there are 10.5 points per quiz period, four points from the two reading discussions, one point for the two math problems, and 5.5 points for the quiz.

The percentage beside the fraction is your class grade. Ninety and above is an A, 80 and above is a B, 70 and above is a C, etc.
