Scores now up on Canvas

You guys did great on Exam 1, as usual! The mean was 93%. There weren’t any problematic questions – so no points were adjusted. You should see your score in Canvas now, and you should also see your exam report (which tells you which questions you got wrong, if any!) in your Examsoft Student Portal. If you have any questions about the exam, or just want to take a look at it, let me know and we can find a time to do that.

I also went back to quiz 1 and adjusted those scores to reflect this question, which was keyed incorrectly:

Which of the following bacteria is the most common cause of community-acquired pneumonia?

A. Staphylococcus aureus
B. Haemophilus influenzae
C. Streptococcus pneumoniae
D. Mycoplasma pneumonia

The correct answer is Streptococcus pneumoniae. However, when we did the quiz in class, Staphylococcus aureus was accidentally marked as the correct answer.

My first “fix” was to add a point to everyone’s score, which is what I usually do when a question is really hard. But this didn’t fix the problem, as one of you very kindly pointed out to me. It didn’t give credit to the students who answered the question correctly!

So today I fixed the scores correctly…if you’re still reading I’m impressed…I rescored the quiz using the correct answer for that question, and I also added an extra point to everyone’s score because the whole thing was just so irritating.

That’s about it for now! Check Canvas when you have a moment and let me know if something doesn’t look right to you.
