At this point we record numbers, not letter grades. The distribution of scores tells you how you per- formed in relation to other members of the class. We grade "on the curve" in a manner that takes into account your numerical grade in combination with our expectations of your performance based upon ex- perience with more than 28 thousand students who have preceded you. In general, if your semester-end weighted score is at least in the upper 80s, you will receive A. Upper 70s to upper 80s get B . Upper 60s
