Grade Assignment in EECS 210

**HOW GRADES WERE ASSIGNED IN EECS 210**
- I computed the weighted sum of the exams, labs and problem sets.

For the relative weightings, see the
introductory handout.
- I rank-ordered the weighted sums from largest to smallest.
- I looked for GAPS in the rank-ordered sums and used them as boundaries.
- I assigned grades to each cluster of rank-ordered scores between the gaps.

**COMMENTS ON THE ABOVE PROCEDURE:**
- Ensured no one only a few points from a higher grade.
- Score below=Exam#1+Exam#2+(1.25)FinalExam
- +(1.25)Lab(max:100)+(0.5)Homework(max:100).
- Maximum possible score: 100+100+125+125+50=500.
- The gaps between grades were 10-15 points or more.
- 3 students in middle of gaps; treated individually.
