3/23/03: The first 4 quiz and first 7 homework scores we have recorded are in a file you can see. The data part of the file is sorted so you can look up your row if you know your first few quiz scores. Your homework score, for now, is the sum of your six best homeworks out of the first seven, divided by 18. We thus have 9 scores for each student (2 scores from each of 4 quizzes and one HW). A March 23 grade status guess is made by taking, for each student, the average of their best 4 scores of these 9. The median for this is 8.7. The best 100 of the 113 students in the class are fairly uniformly distributed between scores of 7.5 and 10. You can see this and anything else you would like to calculate by using or changing the file here.
