Does anyone know if this class is graded based on a curve?

No, the class isn't based on a curve. From the syllabus: " Only at the end of the class when the class average score (out of 500 points) is known are final grades assigned. This class does not use a curve."

So does it use a straight grading scale? Like top 3% get a + and bottom 3% get a - grade in whichever zone they fall into?

It won't be a curve necessarily, but I do think that grades will be adjusted when grades are posted. I don't think that you can be curved down at all.

There is no curve. The class is a straight scale, however if you get at least a 50% in the class then it will be a C-
