Participation: The exam was written by 95 students.
Summary: Of the 95 students who submitted a paper, 43 earned a score of 50% or better. In other words, 45% of the participants passed the test and are eligible to claim credit at a sponsoring university. The median grade was 47%.
There was a two-way tie for the top score of 84%.
Details: For each question, the following table shows the scores that separate the participants into four equally-sized groups. The median score divides the group in half; quartiles 1 and 3 bisect the lower and upper halves again. Scores are reported using percentages instead of individual points to make comparisons easier.
|Question||Point Value||Quartile 1 (%)||Median (%)||Quartile 3 (%)|
|Q1 (short calculations)||42||32||52||68|
|Q3 (related rates)||10||0||40||80|
