NOTE:  In reporting the averages from the tests we drop
       the lowest scores.  This is because the lowest
       of the five tests will be dropped; i.e.  1/5th 
       (or 20.0%) of all test scores will be dropped.
       In comparing your average with the class average
       you need to compare with an average which is
       representative of the final average.  Dropping
       the lowest scores before reporting the average
       is one way of ESTIMATING the effect of the final
       drops.  These posted test averages are not used
       in any way in computing the final overall class
       average.  GBA

     overall                 63.3  final average

    The details of the final grade scale were primarily
determined by the presence of gaps in the grade distribution.
Here is that final grade scale.

      below 36.0    E
      36.0 - 47.3   D
      47.3 - 62.5   C  (above 58.5 is C+)
      62.5 - 77.0   B  (below 67.2 is B-, above 74.0 is B+)
      above 77.0    A  (below 79.8 is A-, above 90.6 is A+)

Letter grades were assigned strictly according to this
scale.  The lowest D is 40.3;  the highest D is 45.0,
the lowest C is 47.3;  the highest C is 60.5, the
lowest B is 62.5; the highest B is 75.5, and the
lowest A is 77.1.  The smallest gap between levels
is 1.6 points between B to A.
