Attention students! For information over the effects of the plus/minus system, please see the link above which lists grade and grade point average distributions for the Fall 2008 and Fall 2009 semesters (before and after the implementation of the plus/minus grading system). This data was collected by the Office of Institutional Research and was shared with the Student Government Association.
A few things to note:
- The overall GPA decreased by .03 points for undergraduate students and decreased by .06 points for graduate students. However, the data shows that this cannot be attributed solely to the implementation of the plus/minus grading system because the amount of Ds and Fs increased.
- There were 3.3% fewer 4.0s awarded to undergraduate students and 10.7% fewer 4.0s awarded to graduate students.
- Only 16% of all grades given were followed by a plus or a minus, reflecting on the low number of courses using the plus/minus grading system.
