CORRELATING MID-TERM AVERAGES TO A FINAL GRADE

In a required course in college, despite how much a student promises to study, or how much a professor encourages the students to work harder, about 75 percent of students will have the same final semester grade as their mid-term grade or average. Fifteen percent of students will go down one half grade from mid-term to final. Five percent of students will go up one half grade. Five percent of students will drop from a C or a D to an F or a W or an I. – Madeleine Curtis, College Professor, Reading, WA, USA
