We have released the grades. The min,max,mean,median,mode, and std were 54,142,103.4,104,104, and 17.2, respectively. If you see a 0 in FD, and you took the exam, you need to contact us (Prof. Scherlis and me) immediately. We will be setting the final grades for the course over the next few days. So, we cannot, at this time, tell you what exactly scores will qualify for A,B,C, etc. We will have all grades entered by Friday afternoon.

For those of you curious about how you are doing in the course, I've posted some stats about all of the graded items. They can be found at https://www.cs.cmu.edu/~211/content/averages/. Note that the stats are raw scores, not percentages. Also note that anyone scoring a zero on an item will not count towards the stats.
I wrote a few scripts to parse the chess output and upload to FrontDesk. There are numerous places for errors in these scripts and although I looked at a few cases for correctness, you should check to make sure your scores are correct. If you have any questions or concerns, email me.

It is the time of year when TAs are contemplating the assignment of TA discretionary points. If you are attending a section other than the one to which you are officially assigned in the HUB, please notify BOTH of the TAs involved, so the correct TA can assign you points for participation. Otherwise you may fall through the cracks and end up with no TA discretionary points.

Here is a script that you can use to check to see how many times in a row you have beaten BachChoy and JackBach. It should be updated by the minute. http://www.link.cs.cmu.edu/211/chess-results.html And in case you missed it -- the account creation link. You will need to provide your andrew id, a handle for the chess server, and create a password for the chess server (not your andrew password)
