I made a ghastly mis-speak in class last week. I was asked if grades get rounded, and I said yes. WRONG Andrew. You can’t round grades. The grade distribution has to be exactly as in the syllabus (p. 6). By University decree, I am not allowed to change that even if I want to. So there can be no rounding. Period.

What was I thinking? Now I am going to get a ton of emails demanding a bit here and bit there, and I will have to point them all to this post, and the highly related one of yesterday.

Sorry folks. This is why I hate speaking off the cuff about grading issues in class. We all need to read the syllabus.
