Our drop date is tomorrow. One of my intro bio students came to me today to discuss her grade. My grade breakdown is in percentages, which apparently no one teaches anymore. Anyway, this student went to her academic advisor for help calculating her overall grade. Even the advisors don't know how to calculate a percentage based grade, because the final tally this student was given was 142! So the student came to me to ask what grade that corresponded to. I normally refuse to calculate grades mis semester for students, but for this girl, I got out the calculator.
After 25 years of having percentage weighted grades, I gave up and have points. And, the total is 1,000 which should make it easy, right? Nope. <sigh>
