A Note To My Students: This course utilizes two grade scales, the traditional grade scale based on percentages of the total points, and a grade scale based on percentages of the highest student. It is NOT based on a curve where there must be a given number of A's, B's, C's, D's and F's. The left percentage for each student reflects the traditional grade scale, while the right percentage reflects the grade scale based on the highest student. You will receive the higher of the two grade scales for your final grade in the course. Grade scales based on the highest student are often used in difficult courses where students seldom come close to the maximum possible points, and the traditional grade scale is much too stringent with few or no A's. My grade scale based on the highest student generally has more C's. It also has more A's and B's if the total points of the highest student is considerably less than the total possible points; however, in Botany 115 online students often come closer to the total possible points, and consequently there are more A's using the traditional grade scale.
