The passing grade for the quiz has been set at 58. In more detail, the numerical grade that you received can be translated into a letter grade by the following chart:
|NUMERICAL GRADE||LETTER GRADE|
|90 - 100||A|
|74 - 89||B|
|58 - 73||C|
|42 - 57||D|
|0 - 41||F|
A histogram of the grades for the quiz is shown below. Note that vertical bars have been offset by half a point, so that each bar indicates the number of students who received the grades that are directly below the bar. The first bar indicates grades of 95-100 (6 possibilities), while every other bar indicates a bin of 5 possibilities: 90-94, 85-89, 80-84, etc. The top bin includes 19 perfect papers, and 31 in the range of 95-99 --- congratulations are in order for all 50 of these people.
Regrade Policy and Deadline:
While we try to grade carefully, mistakes can never be completely avoided. If you have questions about the grading of your exam, you should bring them to your class instructor. In order to make sure that regrade requests are handled while the instructors can still recall how the grading was done, we are setting a deadline for regrade requests. For this quiz, the deadline will be the end of the day on Thursday, October 30.
