Grading statistics – midterm 1

Here are the grading statistics from midterm 1

Midterm1Some of the compression at the top end is caused by our selecting the best 10 questions out of 12.  But even allowing for that, we have a very bimodal distribution, with one larger group of students reaching an almost-perfect score, another rather smaller but significant group who are having trouble with half or more of the questions, and few in between.
