Important Notes

A blank entry in the grade is a missing grade, which means you did not submit a program or did not take an exam. A zero (i.e., 0) entry indicates that you received a zero for that program or exam.

You will not receive a passing grade in the course unless you receive a passing grade on the exams alone (i.e., 60%). Likewise, you will not receive a passing grade in the course unless you receive a passing grade on the programming assignments alone (i.e., 60%).

If you receive a * next to Prog/Avg, Exam/Avg, or Avg, you should work harder for the remaining programming assignments and exams, because you are failing.

Always check if the recorded grades are identical to those marked on the graded programs and papers.

Grade Distribution
Fourteen students failed this course. However, this number is inaccurate because out of this 14 students seven did not attend the final, which means these students gave up this course earlier than the final exam. As a result, only seven students who have completed all programming assignments and all exams. These seven failed this course because they received low or very low programming scores and/or exam scores. Don't you believe that one of them received only 5 points out of 200! I feel sorry for them as they may have tried very hard to pass but could not. You paid so much, but you seem to me did not work hard enough to earn the needed credits. As I have mentioned to you over and over again, I am very serious about this course and will maintain the same standard I have been using in the past eight years.

In what follows, two final distribution graphs are shown. Of these two distrubutions, one excludes those who did not complete this copurse, while the other includes all students on the roster.

Grade Distribution (All Completed Students)
Grade A AB B BC C CD D F
% 15 10 12 10 5 17 15 17
Total Students = 41, Passed = 58.5%, Failed = 41.5%

Grade Distribution (All Enrolled Students)
Grade A AB B BC C CD D F
% 13 8 10 8 4 15 13 29
Total Students = 48, Passed = 39.4%, Failed = 60.4%

How to make a case regarding your graded programs and exams?

  • We anticipate that grading related problems will surface throughout this semester. If you disagree with what the grader did, you should do the following:
    1. Explain why you are correct. Show me a convincing argument. Something like "I did this and this by accident" and "my program ran fine on my machine and/or on one of the lab machines" are not acceptable excuses. You must show the grader missed something. Note that the grader only grade what you have in the program and its output.
    2. Mark those places you may disagree with the grader and print a detailed note explaining why you are correct.
    3. Staple your graded program and your printed notes available in my mailbox in the Department office.
    4. I will make a decision regarding if a re-grade is necessary.
  • You can make a case within one week from the day the graded programs are available for pickup. After this seven-day period, I will assume you accept the recorded grade.
  • You should follow the same procedure to request an exam regrade.
