A new grading proposal

I’m thinking of changing how the exam will count towards your final raw score for the course. In particular for the 65% of the grade, I’m thinking of choosing one of the following options on an individual basis:

  1. Mid-term counts as 25% and Final counts as 40%; OR
  2. Final counts as 65%

Option 1 is the current policy. Again to avoid any confusion, for each student the better of the two options will be taken. In other words, if this change is made, no one’s score will go down (and hopefully it’ll go up for many of you).

Before making my final decision, I’m soliciting feedback. In particular,  if you have any objections, please send them to me by email or in person by noon, Monday, Dec 6, 2010.

If you like the new proposal, please feel free to let me know about that too.

I’ll make the final decision by Monday afternoon after taking the feedback into account.

If you have any general comments and/or clarifying questions, please feel free to use the comments section.
