Explanation of "Probable Grade"
David Matuszek

I have added to Blackboard a new listing entitled "Probable Grade." The reason for this is to give you some idea of your current standing in CIT 591.

This grade is based on:

To compute your final grade, I will drop your lowest quiz. I did not do so to compute the "probable grade", so if you missed a quiz, your "probable grade" may be an underestimate of your final grade.

The grades which I am permitted to assign are A, B, C, D, and F. The University of Pennsylvania does not have + and - grades (such as A-, B+, etc.). For the "probable" grade, I did assign plusses and minuses: the grades I used were A, A-, B+, B, B-, C+, C, C-, D, and F. For example, a grade of B+ means you have a strong B, while a grade of B- means you currently have a B, but it could slip to a C.

If your probable grade is an F, please come and talk to me.
