Phew! Exam 1 Graded!

Give a big round of applause to your TA.  They worked well into the night to grade your exams so that you could check your scores this week on Blackboard and end your suffering.  Overall, I was very pleased with the results.  We had a record number of As (20%), which was more than the number of Bs (15%)--an unusual, but pleasant circumstance.  For many of you, your hard work has paid off.  Congratulations!  If you are disappointed with your score or frustrated with your progress, don't despair yet.  Get help as soon as you can. Stop by my office or visit a tutor in the SLC .  There is plenty of time to make major improvements since we have completed only 36% percent of the course.  For more statistics, including the exam curve and distribution, visit the Grades Fall 2010 page on the course website.

Look over your exam very carefully next week.  If you believe that there are grading or adding errors, follow the instructions in the document exam_corrections.pdf, which can be found on the File Sharing page of the course website.  You must submit your exam within two weeks of the date the exam was given in order to have it reviewed for errors. Your TA will return the exams during discussion section next week.  They will not return the exams before that time, so please don't ask.
