Course Evaluation 5 Lecture Tests –worth 75% of your grade Comprehensive Final Examination –worth 25% of your grade
Final Exam Contains 200 multiple choice questions Includes 5 sections You have the opportunity for grade replacement on two sections in which you took the test during the regular semester. Overall score contributes to 25% of your grade.
Grade Replacement Opportunity The two lowest scores on the five lecture examinations will be compared to the scores on those specific individual sections on the final examination. If the final examination scores are higher on those two sections, they will be replaced. Missed lecture exams with a grade of zero can be considered for grade replacements. However, remember you only receive two grade replacement opportunities so if you miss an exam and receive a zero that already counts as one of your grade replacements.
Grading Policies GRADING SCALE: A=100 – 90D+=69.99 - 65 B+=89.99 – 85D=64.99 - 60 B=84.99 – 80F=59.99 - 0 C+=79.99 - 75 C=74.99 – 70 No individual tests will be curved. After all of the points have been tallied at the end of the semester, the overall class average will be calculated and curved to 75%. That number of curve points will then be added to each person's score. Your final number grade in the class is determined by your final average (which includes grade replacement from the final exam) + points of curve.
TEST STRUCTURE Five tests given throughout semester Tests include a variety of questions: multiple choice, fill-in-the-blank, comparison questions, matching, short answer, essay multiple choice, fill-in-the-blank, comparison questions, matching, short answer, essay Examples of old tests can be found on website
