Curve?

Postby ELu 1J » Sat Feb 22, 2020 5:15 pm

I was just wondering if Dr. Lavelle has curved exams in the past or just giving the class an additional 10 points at the end of the quarter? Does anyone know his pattern of curving? Thanks :)

I don't believe Lavelle curves tests. I think he uses them to calculate the final grades and then curves the final grades a little bit. I could be wrong though.

I don't think he curves tests, but I know that if you get a 50% in the class that's a C.

I think the syllabus says he doesn't curve grades but he might adjust your grade at the end.

He might slightly adjust the overall grades at the end of the quarter, but he won't curve the tests individually.

Tests aren't curved but I am also interested to see if he will adjust grades at the end in order to meet a specific distribution.
