Unofficial Mid-Term Grades
Unofficial Mid-Term Grades have been calculated and posted under PostEm on T-Square. They are based on the unweighted average grade on Quizzes 1, 2, and 3, (Qavg) and the average grade on regular homework (HW) of all regular assignments due through Tuesday, October 25 (wk09). The hope is that an estimate based on more data will have more predictive power, and perhaps be taken more seriously, than the official progress report submitted to the Registrar earlier in the semester. A weighted average was calculated according to:
(2Qavg + HW) / 3
Just like the Progress Reports, an S was issued when this was equal to or greater than 70%, otherwise, a U was issued. Lab, recitation, and participation grades were not considered, nor, obviously, was the final exam.
If you have earned a U, this is the time to take a realistic look at your approach to the course and your resulting performance.
