Grade Cutoffs

Postby Lorraine Medina 3E » Fri Dec 04, 2020 1:52 pm

Hi! Does anyone know the cutoffs for letter grades in this class? The only one I know is that "50% or higher is required to pass with a C- or higher," as stated in the syllabus, however I do not know which other percentages correspond with the other letter grades. Any help is appreciated, thank you so much!

I may be wrong, but I believe that the exact cutoff or grade breakdown depends on how (or whether) the professor curves the grades at the end of the quarter, based on how most students did, which will likely depend on the final quite a bit.

^^ This is what I've heard. I think that our final grade will be curved based on how well most students performed in the class.

I think Lavelle said something about finishing up the syllabus? So maybe he'll put grade breakdowns on that.

Does anyone know what the curve has been like for this class in the past?
