Midterm and the final exam are strictly individual work. There will be no make-up midterm. If you miss the midterm due to illness, inform me in advance and the midterm weight will be redistributed to the final. Group work Select your own groups. The group harmony is the responsibility of the group members, except in extreme circumstances. There will be one grade per group, no matter how the work load is distributed among the group members. Grade Distribution At NYU Stern, we strive to create courses that challenge students intellectually and that meet the Stern standards of academic excellence.
To ensure fairness ND clarity of grading, the Stern faculty have agreed that for elective courses the individual instructor or department IS responsible for determining reasonable grading guidelines. The Finance Department has elected to use the following grading guidelines for this course and all other elective courses. Instructors should award grades of “A” or “A-” to approximately 35% of students in elective courses with enrollments of more than 25 students. In elective classes of less than 25 students, the instructor is at liberty to give whatever grades they think the students deserve, while maintaining rigorous academic standards. % – 35% of students can expect to receive As for excellent work 50-70% of students can expect to receive Bi’s for good or very good work 5-15% Of students can expect to receive Co’s or less for adequate or below work Regarding If you believe an inadvertent error has been made in the grading of an assignment or in assessing an overall course grade, a request to have the grade re-evaluated may be submitted. You must submit such requests in writing, by email to me and the TA within 7 days of receiving the grade, including a brief written statement of why you believe that an error in grading has been made.
