Grade assessment[edit]

20% Labs and lab reports[edit]

Lab reports are due on Pilot according to the following schedule.

  • Fri 24 Jan 2020
  • Fri 14 Feb 2020
  • Fri 13 Mar 2020
  • Fri 3 Apr 2020
  • Fri 24 Apr 2020

A lab report is due (for partial lab credit) even if you missed one or more labs. If you miss a lab, arrange to do a report on a related subject in order to obtain partial credit for that lab.. Under no circumstances may a report based on a missed lab be related to course exams or textbook problems. While you are strongly urged to finish these reports by Friday night, they will be accepted without penalty if turned in before the weekend is over. Details on what belongs in your report can be found at Wright State University Lake Campus/2020-1/Labs.

65%-75% Exams[edit]

There will be approximately five exams (including the final exam). Your worst exam will be automatically dropped. The range (70%-80%) in the weight of your exams involves the fact that quizzes can be used to enhance your exam grade if you have trouble with exams.

5%-15% Quizzes[edit]

If you do well on the exams, unannounced quizzes count for only 5% of your grade. Your percentile rank in the class will be posted on Pilot, based on a weighting of 20-70-10 percent for labs, exams, and quizzes, respectively.
