```NOTE:  In reporting the averages from the test we drop
the lowest scores.  This is because 25% (2 out
of 8) of all scores will eventually 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 averages are not
used in any way in calculating the final class
average. GBA

4th test

87 students took test 4

Multiple Choice

74 students earned 25 or more points

for those 74 the average was 38.9 (64.8%)

Problems

51 students earned 21 or more points

for those 51 the average was 34.7 (53.4%)

Overall averages

81 students took three or more tests and
had at least 90 homework points

for these 81 students

the final HW average is  7.9  points

the final quiz average is  7.5  points

the final test average is 60.7% (48.6 points)

and the overall average is 63.9  points

Note that the overall average includes all students who took
three or more tests (including the fourth test) and who had
at least 90 HW points.  The test average is computed by dropping
the lowest MC section and the lowest problem section for each
student (except one section of test 4 must be kept), computing
each student's average, and then computing a global average
for all 87 students.  With this final average, the final grade
scale is

44.5  -  55.9     D
56.0  -  66.3     C
66.4  -  76.9     B

with below 44.5 as E and above 76.9 as A.  The final scale was
selected so as to find gaps in the distribution.  With the scale
as given above the highest E is 42.5, the lowest D is 44.5, the
the highest D is 55.1, the lowest C is 56.0, the highest C is
65.4, the lowest B is 66.4, the highest B is 75.9, and the lowest
A is 77.0.  The smallest gap is 0.9 points between D and C.
Grades were assigned strictly based on this scale.
