[5/15/12] The final exam has been graded. We are very excited about how well you did! The statistics are: mean = 67.17, median = 70.33, std = 16.76, max = 98.67, min = 22, histogram. The solutions are here. We have pushed your scores for all your assignments into glookup, as well as your final grade for CS188. Note that the glookup-computed letter grade is not always exact as it does not account for the drop-lowest-assignment policy---look at the comments section to see your actual assigned grade. Let us know by today 5pm if anything looks off.
For final exam grading we developed a new system we are pretty excited about: we scanned all your exams, and have an instructor view that made it maximally convenient for us to do fair, consistent, transparent and efficient grading. It also allows us to easily expose your graded exams back to you. You can logon to grades.cs188.org with your cs188.org login and see your graded final! When looking at your graded final you will be able to see the rubric. This is a project we will continue to work on, and if you like this system (from the student-side, or want to use it as reader/GSI), let us know. We look forward to opening it up to others.
Congratulations, and have a great summer!
