That dosnt actually answer any of the questions that I asked, but of hell of a ballet dancing around them. If the prof didnt read or grade the essays, how did he decide the grade(even if pass, highpass, lowpass)? Did he throw a dart at the wall, or was he all about the MC portion of it?
which classes dont give exams? If no exam do they only do P or is there someway to still give a HP in it?
HLS hasn't done class rankings for a long time. The current grade system is low pass, pass, high pass. So basically A-, A and A+ got lumped together in high pass while pass lumps B and B+ and low pass = B-. I'm sure its not an exact match-up, but that's basically it. There is a mandatory curve, so the ratio of low pass, pass and high passes will be pretty constant (so unlike YLS, low passes are common at hls).
