PSY 402: Psychopharmacology
Course Grades



 
The following scores are posted strictly as a courtesy to students. Because this method of posting scores is prone to error, the postings are nonbinding. The actual scores recorded in the instructor's database are definitive. Students are invited to review these scores during normal office hours maintained throughout the academic year when classes are in session.
Notes
  • In compliance with University policy, scores are posted by the last 4 digits of your student number. Some of the ID numbers and the corresponding scores are out of numeric order, so please check the list carefully for your scores.

  • A detailed breakdown of the individual components constituting your course grade is given below and brief explanations follow the data table.
  • Course grades are computed on the basis of the three mean scores with each course component appropriately weighted as described in the course syllabus. Conversion to letter grades uses the following table:
Grading Scale 
A  =  92-100% 
 A- =  90-91% 
 B+ =  88-89% 
 B   =  82-87% 
 B- =   80-81% 
 C+ =  78-79% 
 C   =  72-77% 
 C- =   70-71% 
 D+ =   68-69% 
 D   =   60-67% 
 F    =   below 60%

The Exams
The mean exam score is simply the mathematical average of the three term exams. Letter grades are not assigned to these scores, but the letter grade equivalent can be obtained from the table above. 

The exam score constitutes 75% of the course grade. 

Mean = 83%
Median = 85%
Range = 63% - 98%
The Presentations
Although there were several complaints about group members not fully participating in their group presentations, in keeping with the grading policy announced at the beginning of class the presentations were graded on a pass/fail basis. This means that a strong consensual agreement must be presented to fail a student on this component of the course. No such cases were demonstrated, although one case was very close with 33% of the group members strongly recommended "fail" for one of the members of their group.  

The presentation score constitutes 10% of the course grade.

All participants received 100%.
The Quizzes
Many of you took advantage of the opportunity to boost your grades by attending most classes and taking the pop quizzes. The quizzes were graded very liberally and were generally easy. Those of you who missed quizzes received a "0" for the missed quizzes. The two lowest quiz scores were dropped from the calculations of everyone's mean quiz score. For those missing more than two quizzes, the "0" scores dropped your quiz grades very sharply. This is a prime example of where class attendance (and scoring anything on the quiz) helps your course grade. (Class attendance has also been known to improve exam scores as well!)

The pop quiz score constitutes 15% of the course grade.

Mean = 84%
Median = 94%
Range = 0% - 100%
