Random interlude: The metrics of an exam result

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%
Highest individual score: 85%
Average score for the class: 44.3%

Software Development:

Lowest individual score: 40%
Highest individual score: 90%
