How do you use these study guides? See How To Study for the Quizzes, which is some general advice that past students of mine have found useful.

Federal Law requires that all individual students records be kept confidential, and as such individual test scores are not available electronically or by phone. Please see the professor or the TA in-person to retrieve your quiz and score sheets and so learn your grade. Your grades will also be available on Carmen.

For those of you wondering what all of the numbers mean, how the divisions among scores was derived, and how your grade is actually computed, see these additional pages:

- Statistics [Raw (Percent out of 50)]:
- Mean: 38.27 (76.54%)
- Median: 40 (80%)
- Spread: 6.83 (13.7%)
- Grade Cutoffs [Raw (Percent out of 50)]
- A: 43-50 (86-100%)
- B: 37-42 (74-84%)
- C: 31-36 (62-72%)
- D: 26-30 (52-60%)
- E: 0-25 (0-50%)
- Grade Curve Plot
- The red arrow shows the median score and the green arrow shows the mean score. Note that 1 question is worth 2% points.

- Statistics [Raw (Percent out of 49)]:
- Mean: 38.83 (79.24%)
- Median: 40 (81.6%)
- Spread: 5.67 (11.6%)

- D: 26-30 (53-61%)
- E: 0-25 (0-51%)
- Grade Curve Plot
- The red arrow indicates the median score. Note that 1 question is worth 2.04% because I dropped the question that was misprinted when the test was generated, so the percent score is out of 49 points instead of 50.

- Statistics [Raw (Percent out of 50)]:
- Mean: 36.48 (72.96%)
- Median: 37.5 (75%)
- Spread: 6.55 (13.1%)
