FZ Policy In order to get a D grade from this course, a student must show an overall achievement level of 50%. An important part of this achievement must be accumulated through regular studying, before taking the final exam. The student must demonstrate this by accumulating sufficient prefinal points from the midterm exam such that the overall average will be over 50% if the remaining assessment grades (i.e. Homework+Quiz+Final) average to less than or equal to twice this prefinal grade. Therefore a student cannot get a D grade if the prefinal achivement level is below 31% from the midterm exam. This means, a student will receive the FZ grade (and will not be able to take the final exam) if the midterm grade is less than 31! (If the grade is 31, the student will need to receive at least 62% from the remaining assesments [Homework+Quiz+Final] to get a D grade.)
