Questions

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.
