Norm Bartley and Steve Norman, Course Instructors
Fall Session, 2018
Welcome to the ENEL 353 Course Home Page!
- Happy New Year to All! (Posted January 3, 2019.)Our very best wishes for a happy and successful 2019!
- Course Grades Now Approved: (Posted January 3, 2019.)Course grades are now official, and are visible on Student Centre. Final exam scores are now also visible on D2L. Your instructors do not keep the exam papers after grades are submitted. If you wish to review your final exam, unfortunately, you must wait until the deferred final exams are run in early January, and then you can order a purchased copy of your exam from the Engineering Student Centre.
Here are the grade boundaries:
- A+ [92.6% and above]
- A [87.9 - 92.6%]
- A- [83.2 - 87.9%]
- B+ [78.5 - 83.2%]
- B [73.8 - 78.5%]
- B- [69.1 - 73.8%]
- C+ [64.4 - 69.1%]
- C [59.7 - 64.4%]
- C- [55.0 - 59.7%]
- D+ [50.3 - 55.0%]
- D [46.0 - 50.3%]
- F [below 46%]
Reminder: A final exam score of at least 35% (36.4/104) is needed to pass the course.
- Comments on how final-exam grades were calculated:
As everyone is now aware, Q6 Part (a) did not have a proper solution, but every exam paper was marked for being reasonably close to exhibiting the desired behaviour. Then part (b) was marked for being a complete and accurate implementation of whatever was given as an answer to part (a).
- If a student's mark on Q6 would help their overall exam score, then the overall exam score was just the usual sum of the scores on all nine questions.
- if the Q6 mark would hurt, then the overall exam score was the sum of scores on all questions excluding Q6. Q6 has a maximum mark of 13, so the resulting sum without Q6 was adjusted by multiplying by 104/91.
We did not change the grading scales for the course, because the overall exam scores were mostly very strong, and the class GPA was very good when we used the scale on the course outline.
