Biology 242 Announcements

Fri. 6/23/17 -- Overall, it was a solid performance on a very challenging cumulative Final Exam, folks:  the average was 146.3/200 (73.2%).  Find your Final Exam score and your overall adjusted grade percentage and course grade here.  There was a significant point gap between the top three students and everyone else, so those three students were not eligible to "set the curve"; i.e., I didn't use their point totals to calculate the overall adjusted grade percentages.  Also, in order to ensure statistical equivalence between students who had different lab instructors, two different grading scale adjustments were utilized.  For the day labs, the highest-scoring student (who was eligible to "set the curve") earned 954.5 points, so if you were in a day lab, your overall adjusted grade percentage was calculated by dividing your total points by 954.5.  For the evening labs, the highest-scoring student (who was eligible to "set the curve") earned 947.6 points, so if you were in an evening lab, your overall adjusted grade percentage was calculated by dividing your total points by 947.6.  

Remember, your graded Final Exam will not be returned to you, but you will be welcome to come to my office to view and/or discuss when I return to campus in the fall. 

Again, thank you for all of your hard work, enjoy your break from classes, and I wish you the best as you continue pursuing your academic and career goals!

As you know, the A&P sequence is tough, and it requires a lot of outside-of-class study time and effort in order for you to give yourself the best chance to excel.  A while back, I asked some of my best A&P students to tell me what they did to help them score well on the lecture exams.  Here's what they said.

Here's an article that references a research study about a simple writing exercise to help reduce test anxiety
