Congratulations on a job well done. I was very pleased with the results of exam one; it was apparent the majority of you worked hard on this material. The sample exams also seemed to contribute to more focused studying. I was particularly impressed with the number of students who seemed to have mastered functional group recognition in IR spectroscopy. The approximate curve (grade cutoff's) and score distribution have been posted on the Spring 2008 Grades page under the CHEM 233 tab. Remember that this curve is only approximate; the full value of each of your scores will contribute to the final score, which is then curved. If you would like to discuss your score or believe there is a grading error, stop by during office hours and I'll be happy to look over it with you. Note: your TA's will not be able to make corrections to your exam since the score has already been entered into my gradebook. Again, great job.
