The cutoff for exemptions from the tutoring attendance requirement will again be 72. All students who received a grade of 72 or higher will be exempt from the tutoring attendance requirement starting Monday, November 30, and extending until the end of the term. Remember, by the way, that tutoring is highly recommended even when it is not required.
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. Each bar indicates 5 possible grades: 96-100 for the first bar, 91-95 for the second bar, etc.
If you did badly on this exam, you should try to figure out a way to study for this course more effectively. Talk to your 8.01 recitation instructor, your 8.01 tutor, and/or your advisor. I believe that every one of you is capable of passing this course if you put in some effort. If you are having trouble, you might want to seek extra help from any of the following sources:
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 recitation 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. Any question about the grading should be brought to the attention of your recitation instructor no more than two weeks after the class in which the paper was returned. If you are not satisfied with the action taken by your instructor, please feel free to contact me. Please try to contact me by the last day of classes.
