The most popular terms were 9/11, Holocaust, Great Depression and Cuban Missile Crisis; this really is a depressing section of the course! The high score in the class was 36 out of a possible 40, not counting extra credit, which made calculating the grades much easier for me. The median score was a B- meaning that about as many people got above a B- or above as a B- or below. There was a very even distribution across the B and C grades. Here’s how the grade scale worked out:
As you can see, nobody who took the test failed, and the average was noticeably higher than previous tests, even though the top score was a little higher than last time: most people did better than previously, or held steady.
