Physics 731


The marking sheet used to score your final exams has been posted. The mean was 152 (out of 246, standard dev. 28), with scores ranging from 195 to 87. Grades were based on the composite total given in the syllabus. There were a lot of people in the middle, making it problematic to draw the A/B boundary. In the end, the grade distribution was: 4 A's, 1 A-, 4 A-/B+, 3 B+'s, 2 B's, 1 B--. Alas, the grade A-/B+ will show up only on departmental records. Since this is a graduate course, I coded them as A- on the online grade form.
