Would the teacher say that because the 29 who got 80% or higher got what they got because of their hard studying that the curve would mean that half of those 29 would get A's and half would get B's, or would it mean that the intervals are increased so that the people who got 87% and 88% could potentially get A's?
    Oh, the intervals aren't exactly increased. They're just shifted so that, for my example, 15 out of 20 would be 100%, and any score above is extra points in the test category. So, they are curved so that all scores, notably marginal scores, can go up bit. So that one guy that gets 40% gets a higher score depending on the curve to make his test score less damaging to his grade. It's not exactly clear how he determines the actual curve, though. And FRQ's are never curved, so that's another balance.

    Oh, okay, so the maximum is literally decreased, and extra points would go into extra credit, right?

    Sometimes my teachers would take the highest test grade in the class, subtract that from 100, then whatever that was, they'd give those points to everybody in the class.

    So if the highest grade was a 92, the teacher would give everybody an extra 8 points on their test. The person with the highest grade getting a 100.

    I used to take Drivers Ed, it was a good class imo. It helped me out a little and it wasn't a 'real' class, we didn't have to worry about tests or anything.

    Yeah, that's what I do understand about his curve. Speaking of which, I have a test in that class tomorrow, and I actually have a better understanding of what we're actually supposed to know.

    I got a Chemistry test back today and found I had a C+ was one point away from a B-. However, I pointed out that my teacher didn't see that I wrote the answer with correct units in another part of the paper, and I got my B- after all.

    I've been doing better in French recently. Two quizzes aced with my quiz with a B being dropped due to her quiz grading policy (lowest quiz grade is dropped). Thing is tomorrow is a test which may change all of that. I WANT TO ACE THIS.

    same here, well depending on the essay topic. I was angry when I got a 2 on the AP language exam, but then, I remembered that I can't argue to save my life and that I read slower than a snail crawls (well at least then, then again, I was actually reading the passages carefully instead of skimming like I was supposed to)



    so I'll be taking the SATs on Saturday...too bad it doesn't matter. But yeah, seriously, I can't even increase my score anymore, and last time I took the exam , even after I practiced (and not the BS type either) my score still fell, especially for writing, for which I was expecting at least a 650 DX (talking about this writing is making me feel like a grammar nazi, but then I can't get grammar correct either so meh)

    Yesterday at 9 pm, Freshmen were supposed to start signing up for classes for the next two terms. Almost immediately, some people were dropped into wait-lists and some weren't able to get into the course at all. Thankfully, I've only been locked out of one and wait-listed for 2 classes, which I have back-ups for.

    I'm gonna try to get into the closed class first, if I appeal to the professor, I might still be able to get in. Wish me luck

    That's good. And tomorrow's Friday. Don't let the fact that tomorrow's Friday make you less motivated! (:

    I just proposed the idea that our school should do a laser tag version of the hunger games where each grade chooses two students via a lottery and the winning grade wins a pizza party.

    If you are in college and decide to take a "break" with the plans to go back....DO NOT DO IT!! you will hate yourself and regret the decision and it will take you far longer to go back than you planned

    just some words of advice for the younger members

    The only problem is that the school has to approve it so we can have funding to do it.

    Aye, that's true. If any of the primary faculty members are old farts that are part of the Anti-Fun Brigade, chances of it being approved are slim.

    They did approve a dodgeball tourney, but the Hunger Games might be pushing it solely because of the context.
