Unformatted text preview: Homework Grade Calculation The homework for EMA 4223 consisted of a qualitative metric where the TA graded on a scale from 0 ­4 points. The metric was defined as below: Grade 4 Perfect or pretty darn close to perfect with few minor errors 3 Great job with several minor errors 2 Good attempt with major errors 1 Major errors and clearly confused 0 Very little or no effort The 4 ­point grading scale was used on each of the nine homework given in class. The homework average was then calculated on the 4 ­point scale. Next, the 4 ­point based homework average was then converted to a numerical grade. Initially, the point ­to ­grade conversion that was discussed on the first day of class was the following: Homework GRADE Grading Scale A = 4.00 ≥ 92 A- = 3.67 ≥ 88 B+ = 3.33 ≥ 84 B = 3.00 ≥ 80 B- = 2.67 ≥ 76 C+ = 2.33 ≥ 72 C = 2.00 ≥ 68 C- = 1.67 ≥ 65 D+ = 1.33 ≥ 62 D = 1.00 ≥ 59 D- = -0.67 ≥ 56 E = 0.00 < 56 In order to re ­scale the grading scale (effectively curving the grades), the numerical scores shown above where shifted up by a letter grade creating the following point ­ to ­grade conversion. Homework Grading Scale A = 4.00 A- = 3.67 B+ = 3.33 B = 3.00 B- = 2.67 C+ = 2.33 C = 2.00 C- = 1.67 D+ = 1.33 D = 1.00 D- = -0.67 E = 0.00 GRADE ≥ 100 ≥ 92 ≥ 88 ≥ 84 ≥ 80 ≥ 76 ≥ 72 ≥ 68 ≥ 65 ≥ 62 ≥ 59 < 56 This new grading scale creates the following relationship between points and numerical grades: Numerical Grade = 54 exp(0.15*points) Use the above formula to determine your homework grade. ...
