Now this is the kind of mail I like to receive. Great news. - - - - - Chris, you are correct you have earned a "B" for the course. For some reason I had missed your score for your 4th exam and you apparently didn't notice that your 4th exam score was missing on the printout outside the classroom. At any rate I went back in my records and found it. I am processing a change of grade form to change your grade from a "C" to a "B". Have a nice break. Dr. Fulkerson - - - - - - - - - - Next message, 17 minutes later: - - - - - Chris, I have even better news for you. It was your 5th exam, not your 4th that I had misplaced. You got a 69 on your 5th exam giving you a total of 317 points for the semester. Since I had previously lowered the cutoff for an "A" from 319 to 317 points you earned an "A" for the course. Regards, Dr. Fulkerson - - - - - - - - - - That brings my GPA for the semester *way* up. It's amazing what one class can do ;)
Happy news! Happy news! Now I do my happy news dance!
