Grade Distribution
Histogram, Spring 2017

The grading this year will be an
attempt to follow the same absolute standards as last year, but
with different problems, graders, and students, there is no
guarantee that either the proportions of each letter grade, or
the numerical cutoff for each letter grade, will be the same as
last year. But this histogram should still be at least a rough
indication of what the grading this year will look like.

Grade Distribution
Histogram, Spring 2018

Grade histogram showing the cuts
that were used for the final determination of grades. After the
numerical assignments, each student's grades were considered
individually by the course staff, and a few grades that were near
borderlines were boosted above them. Most such boosts were given
to students whose grades have improved significantly during the
term, and students whose average has been pushed down by a single
low grade.
