Class Curve?

Postby Gabriel Ordonez 2K » Mon Nov 18, 2019 4:44 pm

Will Chem 14A have a curve? I’ve been reviewing other chemistry community posts, and many say that Lavelle will adjust range percentages accordingly. Can someone explain this?

Also, if a student needs at least 50% to get a C-, what are the percent ranges for each letter grade above C-? Thank you in advance.

Yes, Dr. Lavelle will adjust grades accordingly he may decide the cutoff for grades to be 250/500 points, but I do not believe there is any "set" percent ranges for the grades. Therefore, I don't think I can answer your second question.

It varies quarter to quarter based overall on how the classes perform.

I think Lavelle's curve will depend on the overall grades of the students in this quarter's 14A class the percent ranges for letter grades will be determined by his curve for this quarter.

Will be determined by class average but surely there will be a form of curve.
