CHEM 232 Exam 2 Graded, Scores Posted

Your scores for exam two have been posted to Blackboard as well as your current course grade. For exam and course statistics, view the Grades Spring 2012 page on the course website. If you are concerned with your grade in this course, please stop by during office hours so that we can discuss likely outcomes, options and strategies. Reminder: The deadline to withdraw from a course is this Friday, March 16 at 4:00 p.m. I will be holding extended office hours this week to accommodate everyone:

W: 11:00 am - 4:00 pm (2206A SEL)
R:  10:45 am - 12:00 pm (SLC)
R:  2:00 pm - 4:00 pm (2206A SEL)

After your TA returns your exam to you, look over it carefully for grading or addition errors. If you suspect there is an error, follow the instructions in the document, exam_corrections.pdf, which can be downloaded from the File Sharing page of the course website. Exam two corrections must be submitted by Monday, April 2 to be considered.

CHEM 233 Midterm Grades Posted

Your midterm exam score, lab report average score and current course grade have been posted to Blackboard. You will receive your exam back during your next lab session. For midterm exam and course grading stats, visit the Grades Spring 2012 page on the CHEM 233 course website.

After you receive your exam, carefully check for mistakes or addition errors. If you believe there is a grading error, first consult your TA and if they agree, then submit your exam for review according to the instructions in the handout (exam_corrections.pdf) posted on the File Sharing Page of the orgo labs website. You must submit your exam directly to Dr. L by Friday, March 30 for it to be considered for corrections. No exam will be accepted or corrections made after that date.

Finally, if you would like more information on your standing in the course or are concerned about your performance, please stop by during office hours as soon as possible so that we can discuss strategies for improving your grade. Little can be done at the end of the semester. With over 300 points remaining in the course, however, you can still make significant improvements if you are not meeting your current goals.
