ENG 99

                      
Introduction to Academic Writing--Final Points Totals

Hi Eng 99 people,

 

May 20, 2013: I had a great time working with all of you!  Your final grade is below.  I owe you an apology: I thought the grading was pass-no credit.  However, I found out that the kind of grading changed several years ago.  Instead, the course now has letter grading for final grades.  For this reason, I have given each of you the letter grade you have coming to you.  See below.
 
Your final test grade scores also are below.  This time, the graders were a lot tougher than for the mid-term test.  The very best grade for the final test was three people with B-.  That compares with the very best grade for the mid-semester test of three people with an A-.  Its hard for me to believe that everyone did that much worse on the final test.  I think you really did not.  However, I think the grades were lower for two reasons: (1) your mid-term test graders were two fairly easy guys (myself and another guy), whereas the final-test graders both were pretty tough.  And (2), I think you learned some things that the final-test graders didnt appreciate as much as they should have, such as the fact that you used a lot of quotes and you knew how to organize pretty well.

 

A few of you might want to take more ESL classes at your local community education programs or high schools before going on to Eng 1108, especially if you get a hard 1108 teacher.  But I do believe that if you decide to take Eng 1108, and if you work hard and practice a lot, you can succeed in it!
 
So, Im still proud of you, and I think you may have been my most favorite Eng 99 class I have ever worked with!  I will remember you the rest of my life!
 
:-)
