Modern Algebra Fall 2016
Comments on the second exam
Scores for the first exam have been posted on blackboard. Exams
will be returned in class on Tuesday, 11/15/16. It is important
that you come to class to pick up your exam because you are assigned to
work with a group to produce a complete set of correct solutions that
will be due Tuesday, 11/22.
Exam solutions are a required component for the course portfolio.
Specific directions are
When you get your
exam, please double check that I have added up the points correctly and
also that the score on your paper is the same as the one posted on
blackboard. I try hard not to make errors totaling or recording
scores. But if an error has been made, I will want to correct it
as soon as possible.
The exam scores are shown in the first histogram below. Scores
been rounded up to the nearest integer, so if your scored an 84.5, it
will appear in the histogram as an 85. The second histogram shows
each student's average for two exams. It shows, for example, that
one student has an exam average of 99, another has an exam average of
89, and two students have exam averages of 85.
The results are again lower than I expected. This will be
discussed further in class on Tuesday.
