Random interlude: The metrics of an exam result

in college

We had our first random Photoshop exam last week. We received our results yesterday (Sunday). For lack of anything better to do before I have food in my belly, I’ll break down the metrics:

Limitations:

  1. Our aggregate score was based on two differently-weighted components – the theory and the practical. I am just looking at the aggregate, rather than looking at how everyone did on the different portions.
  2. I am also only using non-0% scores. A 0% represents somebody who missed the exam. If you turned up and made an effort, you were scored.

Overall:

Total # of participants for all classes: 81 
Lowest individual score in any class: 30%
Highest individual score in any class: 95%
Average result for all classes: 53.5%

Games Development:

Total # in class: 28 
Lowest individual score: 30%
Highest individual score: 95%
Average score for the class: 58.4%

Systems and Networking:

Total # in class: 14 
Lowest individual score: 30%
Highest individual score: 95%
Average score for the class: 48.2%

Web Development and Creative Media:

Total # in class: 15 
Lowest individual score: 30%
