CHEM 232 Exam One Scores & Stats Posted

Exam one has been graded and your score posted on the Blackboard grade center. You may view the course statistics including the exam curve on the Grades Fall 2011 page of the course website. Please look over your exam carefully when it is returned to you next week during discussion. If you believe there are grading or addition errors, follow the instructions in the document, exam_corrections.pdf, which can be downloaded from the File Sharing page of the course website. Corrections must be submitted in person to Dr. Landrie by Wednesday, October 5.

Overall, I thought the class did a good job on the exam; the first one is always a learning experience. I was surprised to see, however, that very few students (<10) were correctly able to draw the hyperconjugative model on their Lewis structure in the essay question. Many students were, however, able to explain the hyperconjugative model even if they could not draw it. Therefore, I doubled everyone's essay score so that up to 20 points of extra credit could be earned.

Also, Sapling and i>Clicker scores were updated on Blackboard today. If your score is missing, you still have not registered properly. You must complete registration of both items today to receive credit for these components.
