23  04/27 Course letter grades have been posted on E-Learning in Canvas. (Please ignore the points value given together with your letter grade, which is based solely on the percentages given in the "Total" column.) A letter grade adjustment has been made for some CEN 4072 students as discussed in class. Please check the accuracy of the value given in the "Total" column to ensure that it matches the weightings indicated for your Quiz Average and two Exam percentages.

Fyi, the mean weighted ("Total") percentages are 50 and 61 for CEN 4072 and CEN 6070, respectively, and there was at least a two point difference in percentage values for different letter grades. (Thus, only large changes in quiz or exam scores would result in a course letter grade change.)

Again, thanks for taking the course! I hope that you will find the experience to be useful in the future.
