# Midterm 1 and Current Course Grades in Finance 4366

I have uploaded the Midterm 1 Exam grades and current (March 16) attendance/participation, quiz, problem set, and Finance 4366 course grades to Canvas.

As stated in the course syllabus, final numeric course grades will be determined according to the following equation:

Final Course Numeric Grade =.10(Attendance and Participation) +.10(Quizzes) +.20(Problem Sets) + Max{.20(Midterm Exam 1) +.20(Midterm Exam 2) +.20(Final Exam),.20(Midterm Exam 1) +.40(Final Exam),.20(Midterm Exam 2) +.40(Final Exam)}

As I noted in my January 29th blog posting entitled “Finance 4366 Grades on Canvas”, as the spring semester progresses and I continue to collect grades in the attendance, quiz, problem set, and exam categories, then the course grade listed on Canvas will dynamically incorporate that information for each student; now that I have posted the Midterm 1 Exam grades, the equation that I am now using (until Midterm 2) is:

Course Numeric Grade after Midterm 1 = (.10(Attendance and Participation) +.10(Quizzes) +.20(Problem Sets) +.20(Midterm 1))/.6

There are n = 18 students enrolled in Finance 4366. Here are the current grade statistics, broken down by grade category:

Although actual letter grades won’t be assigned until after the final exam, hypothetically, you can determine where your course letter grade currently stands by comparing it with the course letter grade schedule that also appears in the course syllabus:

If you are disappointed by your performance to date in Finance 4366, remember that the final exam grade automatically double counts in place of a lower midterm exam grade. If both midterm exam grades are lower than the final exam grade, the final exam grade replaces the lower of the two midterm exam grades.
