CS302 Midterm Exam -- March 7, 2017
The hardest part of this exam was managing time. Most of the questions
(including question 6) were straight from the lecture notes. There were
others that required you to put a few steps together (Question 4, Parts
E, J and K of Question 1), and unsurprisingly, those were the ones on
which you had the hardest time.
Here is the mapping of scores to grades. I have been quite lenient here to
account for the time pressure.
- A+: 80 and above -- great job!
- A: 65 - 80
- B: 50 - 65
- C: 40 - 50
- D: 30 - 40
- F: 0 - 30
This is a Tukey Plot, which has lines to the max and min, yellow box denoting
the 1st and 3rd quartiles, hash marks at the median, and dot at the mean.
In the answers and grading, there are histograms of scores for each question.
